  • Convert the disk type to dynamic.
  • Ensure that the disk type is basic.
  • Format the disk with the FAT64 file system.
  • Partition the new space as a basic disk.

    A partition must be formatted with the NTFS file system in order to extend it by using the unallocated space on the disk. Once the partition has been extended, the disk type must be converted to a dynamic disk in order for the new partition to be accessible.
