Can "Windows Image Backup" Create Backup of Windows 7 on Dynamic Disk?

Hello everyone.

I am thinking to convert my HDDs to Windows Dynamic Disks. I would love to use software RAID (Hardware Does not support RAID) and I see to do this I need to Convert HDDs to Dynamic Disks. I have done Dynamic Disk RAID 0 in Win XP era.

I heavily rely on the inbuilt Windows Image backup to Reset the system to Fully customized and tuned state as the need be. I came to read that Image backup does not like Backing up TO A DYNAMIC DISK.

However, I am curious if the Image backup can successfully backup FROM and RESTORE TO a Dynamic disk , provided that WindowsImageBackup Itself is on a basic, USB HDD?
