I want to remove my raid 0 and use the two drives independently!
Posted 21 June 2013 - 05:45 AM
Windows 7 see's them as a single E:\ drive and they are formated to NTFS.
What I would like to do is use then as single drives connected directly to my motherboard.
If I connect them directly to the motherboard they are not detected (I have tried two different boards).
I have tried deleting the array using the Highpoint interface (CTRL-H) on startup but this makes no difference.
Is there anything special I have to do?
Your help and or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

i dont think they like us to post urls to specific applications/products even if they are free but google dd for windows and you will see a lot of hits for free utilities that will wipe your disk for you from inside windows. rawrite studio is one of them.
Connect one at a time directly to the MB, and then use a freebie such as HDAT2 or VIVARD in FreeDOS to wipe them completely, starting from sector 0...that should remove anything and everything that the RAID controller could have written, and then they'll show up as virgin blank drives after that.
