Dynamic disk overview
It is well known to us that basic and dynamic disk are two types of computer hard disk. As usual, a basic MBR disk contains up to four primary partitions or three primary partitions and one extend partition, while there is up to 2000 dynamic volumes in dynamic disk.
Dynamic disk is supported (readable) by Windows 2000, XP Professional, Windows Server 2003, Vista Ultimate, Vista Enterprise, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008(R2), Windows Server 2012(R2), and Windows Server 2016.
But it still has many benefits leading users convert to dynamic disk. Separate dynamic disk can be combined into a single dynamic volume, split data among several dynamic disks for increased performance, or duplicate data among several dynamic disks for increased reliability. It can resize the dynamic volume without reinstalling the windows system.
