    What are the advantages of dynamic disks in Windows XP Professional? Will my disks be faster if I turn them to dynamic? Or will they be faster with normal (non-dynamic) NTFS?
    It's not important to know all the answers, as long as you know how to contact someone who does.

    i don't know much about dynamic disks but wat i read after searching and all...i think that untill you are managing a high end server, it is too much of work to convert your disks to dynamic disks.

    the way dynamic disks handle their selves i doubt that u will notice any performance enhancement either, so if u r on a stand-alone PC then i would advice to stay away from it.

    you can read more about dynamic disks here and here .

    do check out the limitations of dynamic disks in first link.

    a few warnings for you before you turn to dynamic disks will be:

    Reverting to Basic Disk will be quite difficult.
    You cannot boot into other operating systems.
    Install or Upgrading to .NET will be difficult or impossible.
    Maybe a problem with 'Ghosting' Dynamic Disk machines.

    you can search more for 'dynamic disks' to know more about them.

    I don't believe they will be any faster but they will support other features that aren't available with basic disks.

    See here for details on the differences.
