Windows 7: Change recovery partition into logical partition???

Change recovery partition into logical partition???

I'm using Vista and Win 7 installed on my drive C and D respectively. Aside from these 2 partitions in my hard drive, I have 2 other primary partitions, which are the recovery partitions.

I need to create another partition where I'd put my data files which I could access while using either Vista or Win 7. But creating another partition would make my disk a dynamic disk...

Could I change one of the recovery partitions into a logical partition, then shrink one of my drives and create a new primary partition (in short I'll have 4 primary partitions and 1 logical which is the recovery partition), without my disk becoming a dynamic disk, and without any ill effects? If this is possible, could I change the newly created partition into logical then make the recovery partition primary? Thanks
