What ts the advantage to using a dynamic drive.
I went to add a drive to my Windows 2003 SB Server and it ended up being a dynamic drive.
Aren't dynamic drives only useful on the machine where they were created?

If I have a Basic Drive for my main IDE - boot drive, and I have a Dynamic Drive (an exact same brand and size)..and I clone the C drive to the D drive, will I be able to mount that drive and boot it up if the main one dies?
