Before you try to extend a volume, be aware of several limitations. First, you can extend simple and spanned volumes only if they are formatted and the file system is NTFS (and in some instances, ReFS). You can’t extend striped volumes. You can’t extend volumes that aren’t formatted or that are formatted with FAT, FAT32, or exFAT. You can extend NTFS (and in some instances, ReFS) volumes on both basic and dynamic disks by using either Disk Management or DiskPart.
