Dynamic discs

I have upgraded my laptop from Vista to Windows 7 professional, when I formatted and partitioned the hard drive I inadvertently formatted the new partitions as dynamic.
What will be the consequences of this, will I be all right with dynamic disks or should I reinstall Windows 7 and make sure I get basic drives
I initially encountered a problem with the backup program Aronis as it does not support dynamic disks, but due to other issues I have stopped using Acronis. But this experience has left me wondering if I might have other problems further down the line.

You have already hit the only snag I can think of.
