Saved from Windows Dynamic Disk HELL!!!!

I made the mistake of converting a few drives to dynamic disks. Never again!

I consistently got online errors and other random corruptions.

Then I found this awesome blog post
http://mypkb.wordpress.com/2007/03/28/how-to-non-destructively-convert-dynamic-disks-to-basic-disks/

and this awesome software

I took a chance and didn’t do a backup and it went fine.

So a tip for anyone considering windows Dynamic Disks…… DONT!!!!
