We have a running installation of server 2008 R2 which has been up for several months now. There is a single 1TB hard drive in use.

This drive is currently a basic disk and has 2 partitions -
#1 - System Reserved
#2 - The main C: drive

We have a second identical 1TB drive which is not in use (yet).

Would it be possible to convert the first disk to Dynamic then pair it with the second disk as a striped volume? All without data loss or any risk to the system?
