I just bought Samsung Series 9 with SSD 128 GB. The problem is when I shrink the C:\ drive and created new partition volume, I got the message “The operation selected will convert the disk to dynamic. Are you sure you want to continue?”. The problem is there are already 4 partitions in the SSD.
First partition is 100 MB system volume. The second is C: drive (boot drive), then the third is hibernation partition (4 GB), and the last is recovery partition of Samsung Seres 9 (20 GB). After did backup to the DVD and hardisk, I decided to delete the hibernation partition and recovery partition using EaseUS Partition Manager free edition. There is no any effect after I delete the partitions, except I saved more than 24 GB space.
After read from the manual, hibernation partition used by Intel Rapid Start Technology (IRST) for faster booting. But I already delete the partition and my samsung seies 9 boot still fast. Now, I tried to recover the hibernation partition on Samsung series 9. I use Samsung Easy Setting, and in the general tab, I clicked on to off, and then clicked again from off to on, then the software recreate the hibernation partition.
Now, I can create the new volume partition, and also have 20GB added space. When I need to recover the Windows, I just use source from the DVD or external hard disk.
