A dynamic disk has multiple partitions. There is also partition management software used to expand partition. The space which can be extended is limited in one disk only. You can read more at

I realize that in practice, volumes and partitions work the same way, and the terms are used interchangeably. But are the multiple volumes allowed on dynamic disks actually partitions, or do dynamic disks have multiple partitions with volumes on each one? Or just one large partition containing multiple volumes? Hope this question is clear. The text is very fuzzy on the difference between partitions and volumes
