Dynamic Drives from XP - want to use for Vista without reformatting - I want to keep the data
I have an data drive and a games hard drive that are currently set for
dynamic on my Windows XP SP2 system. I'd like to use them in my Vista
system without reformatting or destroying the data on those drives. Is
there a way to migrate them in place without copying all the data to a new
hard drive and then formatting them or converting them to basic and
destroying all the data on them?

My bad - dynamic disks import fine without having to reformat.
