There are lots of dynamic volumes (about 2000) in dynamic disk. And these volumes just like the primary partitions that exist in the basic disk. In some versions of Windows operation system, you can merge two or more dynamic hard disks into a dynamic volume (called spanning), share data among hard disks (called striping) for increasing computer performance, or copy data into several hard drives (called mirroring) to improve reliability. If you want to maximize the hard drive’s performance, adopting dynamic disk will be a wise choice. Compared to basic disk, dynamic disk has many advantages.
However, after converting basic disk to dynamic in windows built-in disk management tool (or DM), you will be unable to convert it back to basic unless deleting all dynamic volumes. In order to get rid of these limitation, we had better find a reliable solution. And the powerful third party partition manager – MiniTool Partition Wizard can pull users out of the trouble. This software can resize partition. And it can fix other problems in partition management. With simple operations and preview function, users will never be afraid of losing data. Next, I’d like to show the step to step instructions to expand partition in dynamic disk.
Before doing partition management, users need to download it at first from its download center. After installing the software to computer and opening it, users can enter its main interface.
1. To extend dynamic disk partition, choose the specified partition, and then click “Move/Resize Partition” to enter into the next interface.
2. Drag the sliding bar to the right. Then click “OK” to return to main interface.
3. Click “Apply” button to perform all pending operations to the computer. After this operation is done, the work to expand partition in dynamic disk is fulfilled in MiniTool Partition Wizard.
