  1. Can't convert MBR to Dynamic (Not enough space). Trying to RAID1 primary disk.


    Hi,

    I seem to be getting this error when I attempted to convert my primary basic disk (CCan't convert MBR to Dynamic (Not enough space).  Trying to RAID1 primary disk. :) to dynamic so that it could be mirrored in a software RAID1 in Windows 10 Pro. Primary goal here is to get my main drive mirrored WITHOUT having to reinstall the os. (Pay no attention to the raid below setup, I was simply testing to see if it would work on 2 other disks). Can't convert MBR to Dynamic (Not enough space).

    I would be even willing to xfer the OS to the raid 1 I already set below it but mini partition tool doesn't seem to like dynamic disks for some reason?

    :)

    Convert Basic Disk into Dynamic Disk

    Hi Charbel,

    It would be helpful if you mentioned the things that you have tried to do that failed so that we can skip those steps. You can follow the steps provided in the article:
    How to convert a basic disk to a dynamic disk in Windows 7, to change a basic disk to
    a dynamic one. The instructions are also applicable for Windows 10. You can also check this article:
    Extend a basic volume.

    Ensure that you create a back up for your system as well.

    Regards.
