Convert Dynamic to Basic ... data will be ok?

I have a HDD with data on it which I've used as an internal hard drive. I am pretty sure I made it Basic HDD during the initial setup 'cause I always do that; might have goofed I guess...

Anywaste, I am now using it as an external hard drive, but when it is connected via USB to the PC I have to go into Disk Management and Reactive it before I can use it. I notice it is assigned as a Dynamic HDD.

Will converting it damage any data. I have plenty of other hard drive space so I can copy the contents as a safety measure, but that takes time...

Hey, what can I say, I'm kinda impatient... Or at least lazy...
