Category: Home > Hardware > Disk Drives
This tweak allows you to convert an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) 1394 (FireWire) disk drive to a dynamic disk drive.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'EnableDynamicConversionFor1394' using the settings below.
Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.
Note: Do not convert IEEE 1394 disk drives to dynamic disk drives if they are going to be moved to other hosts. This setting must only be used for drives that remain with a single host.
Note: Dynamic disks are not supported on portable computers or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
