Convert basic disk or dynamic disk in Disk Management

As we all know that basic disk and dynamic disk are two configuration types of Windows system. Basic disk allows four primary partitions or three primary partitions and one extended partition, while dynamic disk contains 2000 dynamic volume. Once accidentally convert to dynamic disk when trying to create new partition, all the primary partitions and extended partitions will become dynamic volume. There is a limitation that dynamic disk can not support double system.

It is easy to convert basic disk to dynamic disk with Disk Management. But if you want to convert dynamic disk back into basic disk, it is not easy to do so. First, you should back up all the important volume to basic disk. And then you can delete all the volumes on dynamic disk. Finally you can convert it back to basic disk. It is risky to this operation. Any other methods can help to achieve this goal?
