Do you know what does “convert dynamic disk to basic with ease” mean? Actually, both dynamic disk and basic disk are two common types of disk, but the concept of “dynamic disk” first appeared in Windows 2000. Later, this disk type is more and more widely used by people. Users could carry out lots of disk maintenance operations on dynamic disk with no need to restart computer.
Although dynamic disk has the above advantage, users may still want to change disk type. They may want to convert dynamic disk to basic with ease because of their habits or other reasons.
Surely, users can use Disk Management in Windows to change disk type. Users had better to know that they can easily use Disk Management to convert basic disk to dynamic, but it’s not so easy to convert dynamic disk to basic by using the small tool. Why this problem comes into being? Because Windows Disk Management can’t help users to convert dynamic disk to basic disk if there are partitions on dynamic disk, it can only achieve converting empty dynamic disk to basic. If there are partitions (volumes) on dynamic disk, then “Convert Dynamic to Basic” option is in a disabled state.
