Your response, "A dynamic disk is not "an extension of the primary drive" (although it is true that it is possible, if both disks are dynamic disks, to create volumes spanning both disks)." <--- I kind of figured this, but was unsure of the reason why is was called dynamic in the first place. Just kind of threw me off as I had not seen that term.
I did format the drive with "Disk Management", I gave it a drive letter and a name. However, when I viewed it in Disk management all it showed was one volume and not broken up as having a partition like my primary drive. That is what threw me off. My question is it supposed to be viewed that way when viewed under Disk Management?
I guess what I am saying is that, if in the future I want to use this drive as an additional OS drive can I leave it the way it is or must I reformat it to meet additional requirements?
