Move Unallocated Space from One Disk To Another FAQs

We provide you with several questions and answers. If you want to get additional help, you can read on.

What is the difference between disk 0 and disk 1?

Disk 1 and Disk 0 are two different physical discs. Disk 0 maybe 120 GB SSD. Disk 1 maybe 1 TB HDD. It nearly covers your requirement of having more storage space.

Is Dynamic Disk better than basic?

A dynamic disk gives more flexibility than a basic disk because it does not use a partition table to keep track of all partitions. Instead, it uses a hidden logical disk manager (LDM) or virtual disk service (VDS) to track information about the disk's dynamic partitions or volumes.

How do I add space from disk 1 to disk 0?

You need two steps, and you can merge the two disks. 

Step 1. Convert the two disks into dynamic disks. 

Step 2. Resize one of the disk partition to add space to it.

Can you combine two SSDs?

Yes. If none of them is a system disk, you can merge SSDs with the help of EaseUS Partition Master.
