Onboard Software Should Do It

by TechEnthusiast In reply to repartiton of raid dynami ...

The Onboard RAID software that manages and was used to create the RAID partition ahould be able to repartition the drives. You get into the RAID manager much like you get into BIOS. On startup, usually after the BIOS entry message, a second screen will display the RAID manager information ( size of disks in RAID, etc.) and the keystrokes to get into the manager. Once in the manager you have access to utilities to delete the RAID partition and set it up however you desire.

the safest way to resize dynamic disk

by longtail In reply to repartiton of raid dynami ...

In fact, you cannot resize dynamic disk directly, as there is no SW in the market that can resize dynamic disk, you need to convert the dynamic disk to basic and resize, then convert back to dynamic in disk management.

To convert dynamic disk to basic, there are two ways, convert dynamic disk directly to basic, but this feature is only for simple volume. Another way is copying dynamic disk to basic and this is the safest way. If the system crash or data loss when converting directly, it is a big loss.

You may check this article and there is detail instruction http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/resize-dynamic-disk.htm
