Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk Conversion for Windows Server

About Basic Disk and Dynamic Disk

Basic disk and dynamic disk are two types of hard disk in Windows. The former one is widely used in most PCs. It supports primary partitions and logical partitions to manage the data on the disk.

Dynamic disk, very different from basic disk in Windows, provides some features that basic disk can not provide, such as greater flexibility for volume management.

However, basic disk is more popular than dynamic disk, because the management is much easier than that of dynamic disk. So, many users intend to make a dynamic disk to basic disk conversion to simplify the disk management.
