Win2k - Dynamic disk back to basic

Got this from Technet
To change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk
1. Open Disk Management.
2. Right-see the dynamic disk you want to change back to a basic disk, and then see Revert To Basic Disk.
Notes
1. You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.
2. To open Disk Management, see Start, point to Settings, see Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. In the console tree under Storage, see Disk Management.
3. You must remove all volumes from the dynamic disk before you can change it back to a basic disk.
4. Once you change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk, you can create only partitions and logical drives on that disk.

Hope this helps

Great thanks! Due to the storm on the east coast here, I am home now and not at my server. I will try this out tomorrow then accept the answer.

Thanks.
