Disk Partition in windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    i have made disk partition using shrink volume. the volume has been created as simple volume. but the problem is that all partitions become simple volumes after shrinking including c drive.

    And before shrinking disc 0 is a basic volume. 

    now it converted into dynamic disc while shrinking the volumes. 

    same i have done in windows 7 pro and there these things was not happened to me.

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    I understand. If your disk is already a Dynamic one. We cannot change it back to Basic. Maybe some 3rd parties provide a too that can do this. But it will be at your own rist if you try.

  • fwiw.  The free MiniTools Partition wizard has options that converts dynamic, and others too,  to basic.

  • yeah but there is also a option to convert dynamic to basic, a warning message appear while shrinking "if you convert to dynamic you may not able to boot this computer".

    And one more thing all volumes become simple volumes after shrinking.
