Unable to convert SSD disk from "basic" to "dynamic" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I tried used "Disk Management" to convert my SSD from "basic" to "dynamic".

    I receive an error of type "not enough space" (Greeks) :

    Data : SSD is 120GB and only 45GB in use (75GB free).

    Any idea ?

    Thanks.


    Thanks.

  • There is not enough space at the end of the disk as it is fully consumed by partitions. This is a limitation of converting using disk management. You should be able to convert using the below tool or alternativly shrink the disk volume. More information at this link

  • Hi.

    It not works. All options at "Dynamic Disk" are gray and blocked.


    Thanks.
