  1. Hey folks, I am new here, and I have a problem with dynamic disk that won´t let me create partitions on my hd. I wanted to go back to the regular disk, but I cannot find how to do it. If anyone could help me, I appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Carlinhos

    Firstly, welcome to techspot.

    To undo this conversion run Dmunroot.exe which will revert boot and system partition back to basic but all other volumes will be destroyed. Alternatively you should backup any data on the disk you wish to preserve, then delete all partitions - that should activate the menu choice "Revert to Basic Disk", the entire disk HAS to be unallocated or free space. Dmunroot is an unsupported utility available from Microsoft.

    Regards,
