A: Reason: On your computer, if there have two dynamic disks or more, but you only convert one of them to basic disk, here Windows disk management will appear to a "Missing" disk. The main reason is that the disk configuration information is recorded one another by all dynamic disks. However, to ensure data security, we did not delete these configurations from all dynamic disks.
Advice: We suggest you delete all volumes manually on the "Missing" disk, and then delete the "Missing" disk. Deleting them does not affect your real data on other disk, but this will delete only the configuration information of the converted disk on other dynamic disk. Otherwise, you could use Disk Management or diskpart.exe tool to delete it.
Another method is to convert all dynamic disks to basic disk. The consequence is all "Missing" disks will be removed automatically by Windows.
