Installed 2nd green HDD,now in disk mana it says it's a basic & not dynamic like the other green ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have seagate 2TB for my OS. Before today I hand only one extra HDD in tower a 3TB HDD. in disk management it's list as a Dynamic type drive. Today I bought another green 3TB same model I formatted it and it's listed in disk management as a Basic HDD. Whats going on why did it do this ? So are my HDD's suppose to be Basic or Dynamic and can I change this so both are the same and how or just leave it alone ? By the way when I first turned on the pc with the new green HDD in there I heard what it sounded like a door creaking just a couple of times. Then it stopped. But did it again a couple times when formatting the drive but it's not doing it anymore now. Should I be concerned about it ? thanks

You can only go from basic -> dynamic, not the other way

Simply follow these instructions to convert the basic disk to a dynamic one:

Convert Disk from Basic to Dynamic in Disk Management
1. Open the Control Panel (Icons view), and click on the Administrative Tools icon, then close the Control Panel window.

2. Click on Computer Management in Administrative Tools, then close the Administrative Tools window.

3. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.

4. In the left pane under Storage, click on Disk Management.

5. Right click on the disk (ex: Disk 1) that you want to convert to a dynamic disk, and click on Convert to Dynamic Disk.

6. Make sure that the box is checked for only the disk (ex: Disk 1) that you want to convert to a dynamic disk, and click on OK.

7. Click on Convert.

8. Click on Yes to confirm.

9. When done, you will notice that the disk is now a dynamic disk with your partitions from the basic disk now as simple volumes in Disk Management.

10. If this is a new HDD and it is all unallocated space, then you can now create new simple volumes with the unallocated space.

11. When done, close Disk Management.

I'd monitor the SMART values carefully (CrystalDiskInfo) Hard drives almost never squeal unless there is contact with a head and the platter. If it's less of a squeal but an equally unusual noise, I'd still be cautious.

Before you use it, fill the drive with random data. Then run WD's diagnostics on it and check SMART again. If you're in no hurry, format and repeat.
