Dynamic Disk Manager Windows 10

What is a Windows 10 dynamic disk?

Dynamic disks are another type of disks that are different from basic disks. Basic disks are the most commonly used disk type in Windows. It supports two types of partitions: MBR (Master Boot Record) and GPT (GUID Partition Table). Generally, you can create primary and logical partitions on basic disks. The most important thing is that it is compatible with all Windows operating systems, from MS-DOS, Windows 95/98 to Windows 10.


Unlike basic disks, dynamic disks use hidden Logical Disk Manager (LDM) or Virtual Disk Service (VDS) to track information about dynamic partitions or volumes of disks. In addition, dynamic disks support the following five types of dynamic volumes: simple volumes, mirrored volumes, striped volumes, spanned volumes, and RAID-5 volumes. And the dynamic disk is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2016, 2019, Vista, Windows 7/8/10. Some older operating systems do not support dynamic disks.
