Alright, just seeing if this would work. I KNOW you can't just switch from Dynamic > Basic and everything will work out dandy.
Would it work to change the disk from Dynamic to Basic using TestDisk and not destroy the data? Then I could just use a file restoring program to get all the files back (I realize this would take some time on a 1TB drive).
This is a storage drive, not a system drive. So the files won't be over written.
Work? Not work? Could I destroy all the volumes, make one giant partition as a basic disk, and then restore data? Tell me what you think!
