 - Contains one NTFS formatted volume

does not seem like a valid question, like with many practice tests which are nonsense.

Contact the Author's and ask them to validate and explain.

If you were to read it literally, during conversion....how many can be added is zero!

Because you cannot add any after you start the conversion, pre-conversion you can select what disks/volumes/partitions to convert.

But During is NONE.

Again, silly trick question, a bit like

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

Answer 1.

Do you get that ?

thanks for the confirmation... I have been racking my brain on this since I know you can add disk in the wizard. but like you said you need to read it "AS IS" and cannot do it while the conversion is running..

Stupid trick question...... :-(
