reason of creating new simple volume
Now that the simple volume of
dynamic disk is similar with basic disk partition, why do we create it? That is
because simple volume can be managed more conveniently than basic disk
partition. When users extend partition or volume, the partition can only be
extended to the adjacent unallocated space. But volume can be extended to any
unallocated space on disk, which greatly improves the flexibility of extending
volume size. At the same time, basic disk has limitation that partition can only
have 4 primary partitions or 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition, and
it also limits the partition size. However, dynamic disk doesn't limit the
volume quantity and volume size, which makes the use of dynamic disk more
convenient and efficient.
