Hi All,

Just have a quick question. I am working with an Admin who is experiencing a strange issue with some partitions he created on a Dynamic Disk. Using Disk Management on his Server 2008 R2 server he shrunk a volume down to create a 450GB volume. He then assign a drive letter to the volume and found that 2 additional volumes where created with the same drive letter. All 3 volumes equal the size of the volume he created. When he changes one volume Drive Letter the others change to.

I have included the screen shots sent to me from the server. I think it is down to how he created the first volume and now it has split the volume into 3 slices (if that makes sense).

Just wondering if anyone can shed some light. I have asked the admin to deleted the volume and reformat it as a single volume and then try to re-create it.
