PowerShell storage commands can be used instead of most of the manual steps in diskpart. But one step has me stumped. Is diskpart really the only way to convert a basic disk to dynamic?

It adds spice to a project when you have to automate someone else's legacy process. : ) Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
