Windows 7: Win 7 ult upgrade with dynamic (non-system) drives - Win 10 supported?

Win 7 ult upgrade with dynamic (non-system) drives - Win 10 supported?

I have a basic disk for my system reserve and windows and a D: drive that is a mirror. The D: drives have some programs installed. When I upgrade, will Win 10 have an issue with my non-system dynamic drives? IF so I will need to break the mirror and change one of the disks to basic and copy everything over but I really don't want to do that. Just want to know if Win 10 supports my dynamic drives (non-system). I've searched for hours with nothing concrete... Thanks for any replies.

[EDIT: I failed to mention it is a Windows Mirror not a hardware raid)
