    The most safe way should be backup or clone the dynamic disk firstly and then do a dynamic disk conversion in the Disk Management tool. Free Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk Without Data Loss - EaseUS

    As we know, it's easy to convert a basic disk to dynamic one in Windows but fairly difficult vice versa. Because Windows Disk Management only allows you to convert those disks which contain no volumes or partitions. Anyway, there still exists the way to convert dynamic disk to basic without data loss. Pay attention that in case of data loss due to wrong operations or other unexpected factors, you’d better have a backup of data first.

    The terms "Basic" and "Dynamic" refer to the entire physical disk, not individual partitions. To convert to a Basic disk without destroying all volumes you would need to use a third party utility. You would be well advised to have a backup of everything on the disk before proceeding.

    Back up all volumes on the disk first if you want to convert from dynamic to basic and then you can use partition master to complete this.

    Hi, follow below steps to convert the dynamic disk into basic disk.

    Just open Device Management window.

    Delete the partition that you want to change into basic but make sure before deleting the partition that you have took backup of all the data.

    After this, just do right click on that Dynamic disk and then click on convert it into basic.

    I believe it will work for you!!

    Good Luck!!
