Virtual Disk Service (VDS) crashes when you try to extend a dynamic volume in an NTFS file system on a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows 7

For example, the issue occurs when you use the Diskpart.exe utility or the Symantec Storage Foundation for Windows to extend a dynamic volume.

error code 0x800706b
