The hard disk configuration in Windows falls into two types: Basic and Dynamic Disks, while most PCs are configured as basic disks, which are the simplest to manage. But the partitions on a basic disk cannot share or split data with other partitions, as each partition on a basic disk is a separate entity on the disk.

Due to the limitation of Windows Disk Management, you cannot convert dynamic disk to basic disk without data loss. However, EaseUS Partition Master free 10.8 can help you convert dynamic disk to basic disk directly without losing any data.

Dynamic disks can contain a large number of dynamic volumes that function like the primary partitions used on basic disks.

Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk without Losing Data

EaseUS Partition Master has the features to convert dynamic disk containing simple or mirrored volumes to basic disk without losing data. Find the step-by-step instructions to convert a dynamic disk to a basic disk below:

  1. Download EaseUS Partition Master, and go to main screen.
  2. Select dynamic disk on the disk map.
  3. Right click on the dynamic disk and choose "Convert to basic disk".
  4. Click "Apply" to convert dynamic disk to basic disk.  
  5. Congratulations.

You will now see that the dynamic disk has become basic disk in Windows Disk Management. Then you can use "Resize/Move partition" feature to resize partitions on the basic disk.

While, disk management for Windows 10 partition allows you to resize hard disk partitions under Windows 10 (32 bit and 64 bit) OS.
