    The only problem that you need to worry about now is changing back to Basic Disk, nothing else. Click on the link in Post 3 and read the tutorial? That is must.
    I did read the tutorial - of the 4 options listed, only the first can do it w/o wiping data. I did both methods listed in option 1 (boot and program) and both gave same error (Cannot convert any dynamic volume type except simple or mirrored volume).

    What can I do now?

    Thanks for the help.

    Give this a try. They advertise free program with no data loss. See if it works.
    Free Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic Disk Without Data Loss - EaseUS

    If the above does not work, get the pay version of Partition Wizard here to change back to Basic Disk.

    $39, it might be worth it to you.

    Downloaded EaseUS, there's no option to convert where there should be. I *tried* the paid version of Partition Wizard as well, same result as free version. Could you maybe instruct me how to get the 2 G:/ drives and the 2 unallocated spaces merged? I think that's why none of these programs are able to convert.

    You are doing something wrong with Partition Wizard professional (pay copy). It will do it.. Read the instructions again. It will correct your problem and not lose data. Did you make a boot disk? You can not install the program on the same disk you are trying to change. Make a bootable disk and do the work from that.
