This is a stupid error on my part, but while I was trying to wipe an external HDD and recover all the space, I saw an option to "Convert to Dynamic Disk", so, I clicked it. It gave me the options of Disk 0 and Disk 5 (external was on Disk 5), but I checked the boxes for both drives, not entirely understanding what the effects would be.
So, when I tried to create my recovery disks and clicked on recovery partition. Now, I'm not able to create recovery media anymore and am getting a runtime error every time the system tries to run the "recovburncd.exe" file.
When I try to open the "Lenovo_Recovery" partition, it comes up as blank. My guess is that files are hidden, but in Explorer, it shows that there are "2.29GB free of 9.76GB".
Being that I converted disk 0 from Basic to Dynamic, I'm guessing that's the root cause. Is there any way to revert this? All searches have been without success. Is there any other workaround?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
