Re: Extending Disk Volume

When I enter the Extend Volume Wizard and select an amount of space = 10 GB, then NEXT, then FINISH, I am informed that the disk will be converted to a dynamic disk.
Is this conversion necessary to extend a volume? Is there a reason to be wary of this?
Answering my own question:
"Free Space" is different from "Unalloc Space"
I deleted the "Free Space" partition creating "Unalloc Space" and then was able to extend volume D without creating a dynamic disk.
Someone must be making lots of money from this overly obfuscated terminology for disk management.
