I have a Dynamic Disk that is split into 6 ReFS Partitions. All Partitions are using the same Drive Letter.

I have two questions.
  1. How is the data stored across this disk? If the whole disk was only 50% full, and the disk was properly defragmented, would all of the data be together or would it be split across the partitions?
  2. How do I turn this into one Partition?


How this happened: It was formatted as NTFS and I wanted to convert it to ReFS without losing any data. I shrunk the NTFS volume by as much as possible, converted the unallocated storage to ReFS, transferred data from NTFS to ReFS and then repeated until everything was moved.

Thanks in advance and let me know if you have any queries :)
