A dynamic disk will allow you to do things like expand or shrink volumes as well as create soft arrays with multiple physical disks.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Satheesh,

This, and your other recent questions sound like homework questions.  There is lots of documentation on the web for what the differences are between dynamic and basic disks and google search like "Differences between dynamic and basic disk" will likely give you all the answers you need.

This site is meant to assist people who are having problems in their production, testing, or development environments and not to help people with homework.

If this is a homework question please request it be closed and do the research.
If this is not a homework question I apologize for assuming it was.
