Windows 7: Looking for an app to change partition

25 Nov 2010   #11

win7 ultimate / virtual box

well thnx SIW2 I stand corrected, it is apparently possible despite the fact that I was taught in my MCITP classes and exam that it couldn't be done

MT solutions used to include that function in their Partition Wizard 4.2 FREE edition.

If you look closely at the video - you can see it is the 4.2 - even the free version had that function Watch how to use Partition Wizard to convert dynamic disk to basic disk

If the OP can find a copy of the earlier 4.2 FREE edition, he can use that.
