    how to convert Dynamic disk to Basic disk without data loss ?

    Hi,

    The process of conversion is quite tricky but not exactly that complicated. Suggested safe is to have your data cloned and work on the clone instead of the original. This suggestions and steps were provided by one of the Microsoft Community Forum MVP's,
    John John__ in his response on this thread. Follow the steps carefully
    to be able to avoid data loss.

    I hope it helps. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to come back to us.

  4. Internal hard disk went from basic to Dynamic

    Are Dynamic disk really better then basic?

    Are Dynamic disk really better then basic disk? I am takeing my XP administration and maintenance course at school and it talks about Dynamic disks. From what i have read on the internet dynamic disks are not as big as this book claims. The book claims that dynamic disks are the best part of XP and all HDD with XP or 2003 should be dynamic disks.
