On a Server 2003 TS box, there were 2 partitions - a C: and a D:. There was no data on the D:
I wanted to combine the two partitions into the C: so I deleted the D: but accidentally made the system volume (C:) dynamic as I thought I needed to do that to extend C: onto the unallocated space left by D:. Now I can't extend the C: volume as I get this error:
"The selected volume is a system or boot disk or was created on a basic disk in an earlier version of Windows and cannot be extended."
D'oh! Is there any way to convert the C: back to basic? Research led me to 'Dynamic Disk Converter' software but I don't want to pay for software that I will only use once. Are there any other free alternatives?
Or will I need to take an image, reformat and restore the image?
