Greetings.  We have recently added a DAS that has 11.25TB raw space.  We are setting up 2 4TB virtual disks.  To have windows 2003 R2 SP2 Standard Edition able to utilize the 2+TB disk we are in Disk Management converting to GPT.

My questions are does this produce any negatives we should be aware of?  I have heard horror stories about Dynamic disks.

Specifically are there any problems with reconnecting the array to a clean install of windows (i.e. Disaster recovery).
