Before we talk about how to convert dynamic disk to basic without data loss, we would like to tell users what basic disk and dynamic disk are, because knowing these two different disk types is good for users to change disk type.
Basic disk and dynamic disk are two types of disk configuration of Windows system. The former is widely used by home users for simple disk management while the latter is mostly used by advanced users and IT administrators for high computer performance. Basic disk can be divided into primary partition and extended partition to achieve data management. In general, a basic disk can be divided into three primary partitions and one extended partition or four primary partitions. The number of dynamic volume on dynamic disk is far more than that of partition on basic disk. However, users may be more likely to use basic disk, because they may be more familiar to it. After knowing these two concepts, users may want to convert dynamic disk to basic without data loss right away.
Then here is a problem that how to convert dynamic disk to basic without data loss. Users may think about using DM (Disk Management) to achieve this for free. However, it’s a pity to inform users that DM can’t help them achieve this disk conversion.
