It will work as it is simply a share but is not supported.  Better to just add a disk

To be clear - better to add TWO disks - never want data sitting on a non-RAID drive on a server.

And I agree - not supported - you wouldn't be able to use the wizards to control that aspect of SBS and SBS almost always works better when used properly - i.e. with the Wizards.... BUT, plenty of networks store user home folders on other servers - it's not usually an issue.
