    How to back into basic disk from dynamic??
    i try Delete my partition but there is no option for back into basic...
    i saw this tutorial in
    Change a Dynamic Disk Back to a Basic Disk
    but it doesn't for my windows 8 pro...

    To change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk using the Windows interface
    • Back up all volumes on the disk you want to convert from dynamic to basic.
    • In Disk Management, right-click each volume on the dynamic disk you want to convert to a basic disk, and then click Delete Volume for each volume on the disk.
    • When all volumes on the disk have been deleted, right-click the disk, and then click Convert to Basic Disk.


    Additional considerations


    • The disk must not have any volumes nor contain any data before you can change it back to a basic disk. If you want to keep your data, back it up or move it to another volume before you convert the disk to a basic disk.
    • Once you change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk, you can create only partitions and logical drives on that disk.


    To change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk using a command line
    • Back up all volumes on the disk you want to convert from dynamic to basic.
    • Open a command prompt and type diskpart.
    • At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Make note of the disk number you want to convert to basic.
    • At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>.
    • At the DISKPART prompt, type detail disk <disknumber>.
    • For each volume on the disk, at the DISKPART prompt, type select volume= <volumenumber> and then type delete volume.
    • At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>. Specify the disk number of the disk that you want to convert to a basic disk.
    • At the DISKPART prompt, type convert basic.

    well in my opinion, it is not possible if you just want to change that and keep everything on your disks....
