Coverting software RAID to basic disk.

Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I have a Windows 2003 server that the motherboard died. I had (2) 1TB drives software RAID 1 Mirrored, when I put one of them in my Windows 7 PC to get the data it shows up as a Dynamic Disk - Invalid. My options are to Reactivate Disk or Convert to Basic Disk. Can I do this without losing any data? Thanks.
