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

Mostly used by Microsoft, so here's the link to their explanation:

Mostly only used for their Software RAID options.

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.
