Server 2012 Essentials R2 downgrade to WHS2011 - drivepool question

Currently have Server 2012 Essentials R2 installed on my server with drivepool activated across my 4 data drives. 

 

If I downgrade my OS drive to WHS2011, and install DP, will it see the drivepool, or do I have to break the pool in 2012R2E, and rebuild the pool in 2011?  I also have a 2nd drivepool on my SansDigital external box with 2 drives in it.

ok, duh, palm to forehead.  yes, I'm using StableBit DP.  sorry for the confusion.  so it will survive a downgrade to SBS2011 essentials or WHS 2011 and install DrivePool?

I broke the drive pool for my external SansDigital box into 2 separate drives, copied over my backup files to them and then turned off the machine. Disconnected all external devices and removed my 4*2TB data drives and began installing SBS2011Essentials over night. Have to work today, so I'll continue the install this evening (if I can get a break from the Trick or Treaters). Once 2011E is installed ill hook up the drives and see if backups will work.
