You would make a partition and format it. Then you convert the ENTIRE drive to dynamic

This maybe helpful

Let me start again. It is NOT the system drive and it is basic Not dynamic.
My second HHD I partitioned it into two equal partitions. Used it that way for about a year until I no longer needed the second partition. I deleted the partition. I am now left with about half the drive as unallocated. I would like to recover the unallocated space back to the basic partition which has a number of files on it. I have room on my system disk to create a folder to put those files in while I reformat the complete second drive. I would rather, merely add the unallocated space to the basic drive. Help?

"I would like to recover the unallocated space back to the basic partition which has a number of files on it."

You will need data recovery to do that. Look at the lower left here for Data Recovery.

" I would rather, merely add the unallocated space to the basic drive."

Um to do the file recovery you have to recover the entire partition. You are going to format the drive after the file recovery. You would simple remove all partitions, create one large one and format. This would result in what you desire.

So how did dynamic disks come into the mix?
