In our daily life, we may encounter the word "dynamic disk". Some people may feel confused, because they never heard of it; while some computer users are quite familiar with it. Whether we know it or not, let's share some information about dynamic disk together.

What is dynamic disk?

Dynamic disk is a physical disk initialized for dynamic storage. It contains simple volumes, spanned volumes, striped volumes (RAID-0), mirrored volumes (RAID-1), and RAID-5 volumes. Because of these different volumes, it provides the features that basic disks do not, like the ability to improve data's efficiency of read-write speed, to create new volumes which span multiple disks, to create fault-tolerant volumes and so on.

Compared with basic disks, dynamic disks can also use MBR or GPT disk styles on operating systems. It offers greater flexibility for volume management, because they use a database to track information about dynamic volumes on the disk.

How to manage dynamic disk perfectly?

As it mentioned above, five kinds of volumes are the members of dynamic disk. With a dynamic disk, we can perform disk and volume management without having to restart the operating system. Thus, it is very important to make it well-organized work.

Here, we are so happy to recommend a partition manager to help you better manage dynamic disk. It is AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager, which can do the operations of resizing, moving, creating and so on.

As we all know, some partition manager only supports to work on basic disk, while this partition magic can break this limit. Meanwhile, if you feed up with dynamic disk, it permits you convert to basic disk. Here is a main interface of dynamic disk manager:
