    Convert dynamic disk to basic

    Locked

    by leonard123 ·

    Is there a way to convert dynamic disk to basic without losing the data? I convert my basic one to dynamic by mistake. I check it on website and don’t know how to solve it directly and easily.
    I know Microsoft does not offer this option, but if there is a third party utility to do that.

      The detail information about the conversion between dynamic disks and basic disks you can search on the internet. I have faced the similar problems as you mentioned.
      And I thought convert dynamic disk will be the complex operation at the first time, then, after use the Dynamic Disk Converter, I found that all the boring problems solved immediately. So, I’d like to convert them at any moment, I do not need to worry about the complex operations any longer. So, have a try, worked like a charm.

      If you could handle the WinHex, then you could use this tool to revise the partition parameter from ???42??? to ???07???. Then you will convert the dynamic disk to basic disk, however this way could only support Simple volume, others dynamic disk volume is not handled. You could read more details from http://www.dynamic-disk.com/convert-dynamic-disk-to-basic.html
