Disk type dynamic and cant extend volume

Ray Curry 1 Reputation point

I have added a 1TB m.2 NVME SSD to my laptop to replace my old 256gb ssd

I have cloned my old SSD onto the new m.2 ssd and went into uefi to use the boot file from the new ssd.

However, when trying to extend the volume of the new disk, i get the error there is not enough space.

After doing a little digging on google, I think it is because I have somehow managed to make the new disk dynamic when my old disk was basic.

What should I do?

Is Dynamic or Basic better and how do I extend the volume to use the unallocated storage on the disk?

    Microsoft not recommend to use clone measure on your disk. It will bring potential risk to your system, and will bring system corruption even with data leak security risk. Also clone disk or issue occur on clone disk is out of our support scope.

    Please backup your data and perform a clean install on your new disk.
