I am using the intel matrix controller and I have 3 hard drives divided as follow :
300GB WD as c: drive (non-raid)
2x 1TB Seagate drive as d: in RAID 1
I would like to delete my raid volume so I can use the 2TB total space in a non-raid environment. Is that possible without loosing the data on the raid volume?
I was thinking about removing one hard drive, rebuilt the array on the remaining one and reinsert the hard drive afterward, would that work? Or can I simply "reset a disk to non-raid" in the CTRL-I intel matrix menu?
P.S. Backup is not possible at the moment since I don't have a spare hard drive big enough and I'm trying to save money by "unraiding" my disks to get more space.
Anyone? I tried searching but couldn't find a proper answer!
