help needed with windows 7 backup and restore

Hi

My laptop hard drive is formatted as Dynamic, but i want to convert disk to Basic and restore the same system and continue work.

i used backup and restore to create system disk and saved on a external hard drive

my question is if i restore the system image will restore process create dynamic partition or basic when restoring? will there be a option to select with partition table i want to create before restore?

Regards

I wouldn't want to restore an image of dynamic disks if I wanted to get rid of dynamic disks. I don't use Windows Backup, but would not expect it to offer me any choice between dynamic and basic during the restoraton process.

You need to look here, particularly at option 4:

Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

And avoid dynamic disks like the plague in the future.
