You will need Partition Wizard bootable disk to convert from dynamic.

It's the last link at the bottom of this page. Download it and burn it to disk.

Hi, I am trying to get rid of dynamic drive and create logic drive.

First I backup all my data and delete G: drive. I get unallocated partition size of 220GB.
I download MiniTool as you suggested.

I referred: Partition / Extended : Logical Drives

Unfortunately, when I boot the disk and open wizard. I cannot right click anywhere! It give me msg that this feature is not available for Home addition (Unfortunately I cannot take screenshot)

Do you have a choice to convert the partitions to basic from a menu?

Did you see my link in post 12?

Do any of the menus in Partition Wizard work?

You may not have to right click.

The version of PW that you downloaded may not support what you are trying to do.

Get this earlier 4.22 version here and burn it do a disk and try again:

I do not get any options, I am trying to download the file you suggested.

I also check the second link, but I am getting disk 0 only, and when I right click I do not get any options...

Report back on your experience with Partition Wizard 4.22.

I don't think Disk Management can help you other than to delete a partition, which you don't want to do.

After conversion from dynamic to basic, decide if you want more partitions.

If you do, then the easiest way would likely be to convert C to logical. Then add that unallocated space to C. Then shrink C as needed to generate space for partitions 5, 6, 7, etc.

I tried older version too. No luck! I am not getting any options at all in both versions. I guess this is for whole unallocated disk and I have an unallocated partition. (or May be I am doing something wrong....)

I find this one which is to convert dynamic to basic without data loss:

When I run this it gives me following error :

Yes, But I am not confident to click YES (Option 4 step 7).

I tried option 3 too. As I have only one disk, Disk 0, it is not working
