Basic Disk - Definition

Basic Disk is a physical disk that can be accessed by MS-DOS and all Windows-based operating systems. Basic Disks can contain up to four primary partitions, or three primary partitions and an extended partition with multiple logical drives. If you want to create partitions that span multiple disks, you must first convert the basic disk to a dynamic disk using Disk Management or the Diskpart.exe command-line utility.
