    Hello RST, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Luckily, you are still in Windows 8. Whatever you do, DO NOT restart or shut down this PC until you convert the disk back to "basic". If you do, then Windows will be unbootable.

    You could use step 3 in OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to convert your "Disk 0" from a "dynamic" disk back to a "basic" disk.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi there

    1) Save data from (D).
    2) Delete Partition (D)

    3) Create logical partitions D and F

    Use GPARTED or something like that (Partition manager) to delete and create logical partitions. I think Partition wizard (Free) can also be run from within windows itself -- I prefer though booting GPARTED (also free).

    Cheers
