RAID 0 OS to single SSD or m.2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Good morning,

It is time to update my rig smile.gif. And with a new smaller form factor (moving to NCASE's M1) I will have less space for drives, at least that's the excuse I used to justify my self to buying a new bigger SSD. biggrin.gif

My current OS installation is currently hold in two 120gb SSD's,different brands, in a RAID 0 array via BIOS configuration on a ASROCK Z97E-ITXac, with a 4770k, 8Gb RAM, works for now, and windows 10 pro 64 bit.

My new SSD is an ADATA sp550 980 GB. but also considering getting an M.2, my only current limitation is that my MB only supports 2242 which its maximum capacity is 256 Gb. In fall if I do my HW refresh i will then buy a m.2 2280 compatible MB and grab a 512 or 1tb M.2 biggrin.gif

Now I have googled a bit and found several guides such as life hackers but these are pre Windows 10. and is single drive to single drive. Other posts I have seen are based on Raid 1 in which they remove the array via registry modification and then clone.

I want to see what guys you recommend is easier to transition. As i have attempted guides like this in the past and failed, using a different software tho.

If cloning is imposible if you have any hints on redoing stuff.

All of my games are in a separate data drive so steam is not affected, Origin, only 1 game is affected (BF 4 in SSD), and BDO is affected. Applications such as Microsoft, AV's, are also in the current RAID array.

Any hints will be appreciated

The best way is going to be using some type of linux software.
However when moving from a raid array to a single drive, it is recommended to just re-install windows, that is the easiest solution.

For the linux software you are gonna want to look for a drive cloner. However this requires that you can have all drives hooked up at the same time.
If you can't get all drives hooked up at the same time, then you can't do the clone.
