Tips Convert To Basic and Dynamic Disks on Microsoft Windows XP

Tips Convert To Basic and Dynamic Disks on Microsoft Windows XP

Windows XP Professional supports two types of disk storage : basic and Dynamic. Basic disk storage uses partition-oriented disks. A base disk contains basic volumes (primary partitions, extended partitions, and logical drives). Dynamic disk storage uses volume-oriented disks, and includes features that basic disks do not, such as the ability to create volumes that span multiple disks (and spanned volumes).

General Notes
Before you change a basic disk to a dynamic disk, keep in mind these points :

Must be at least 1 megabyte (MB. of free space on any master Boot Record (MBR. disk that you want to convert. This space is automatically reserved when the partition or volume is created in Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional. However, it may not will be available on partitions or volumes that are created in other operating systems. When converting to a dynamic disk, the existing partitions or logical units in the basic disk become simple volumes in the dynamic disk.

After converting to a dynamic disk, the dynamic volumes can not be changed back to partitions. First, you must delete all dynamic volumes on the disk and then convert the dynamic disk back to a basic disk. If you want to keep your data, you must first make a backup copy or move data another volume.

After converting to a dynamic disk, local access to the dynamic disk is limited to Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000.

If your disk contains multiple installations of Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000, not to convert a dynamic disk. The conversion operation removes the entries for the partition of all the partitions the disc with the exception of the system and boot volumes for the current operating system.

Dynamic disks are not supported on portable computers or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.

Before you change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk, note that all existing volumes must be deleted from the disk before you can convert return to a basic disk. If you want to keep your data, back up the data, or move your data to another volume.

If I read their descriptions correctly, some VPN providers run antivirus on their servers to filter all internet traffic coming through my VPN. This means I don't need to have antivirus running real time protection on my computers while connected to the VPN service.

we do not filter traffic and do not provide antivirus/firewall. We provide VPN connection which encrypts all data, provide dedicated IP and open all ports.
