Restore SBS2003 with Server 2003 Software Mirror

I have a client with SBS2003 Standard with Widnows software mirror.  If I have to restore from the SBS2003 Backup, what do I need to do about the mirror that was there?  When I restore the SBS 2003 Backup can I restore it to a basic disk or must I make them dynamic before I start the restore process.

Hope I am clear in my question and if not, let me know.

Thanks,

Joe

You can restore it to Basic HDD. Dynamic disk is needed to rebuild the software mirror only.
Frankly speaking I would use third party tool to take full images of the entire HDD (one of the sw mirror) as NTbackup is good for file level backup only.
