Backup Software for Dynamic Drives

I have Acronis True Image v9 that I was using to make backups of my hard drive just in case... Well, that is until my brother decided that I needed to convert my hard drive to a dynamic drive, and of course Acronis now tells me that it doesn't support dynamic drives!

Does anyone know of a way to convert my drive back to basic (without losing the data), so I can continue using Acronis? Or is there a similar program to Acronis that does a good job of backups that support dynamic drives?

Any help is greatly appreciated... Thanks!

According to Symantec, their 'Norton Ghost' product supports dynamic drives. See this page: http://www.symantec....mp;pvid=ghost10

Norton Ghost will do it, if you clone it to another drive, and this also converts it back into a basic drive as well.
