Removing RAID 0...How To Image System

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'd like to remove a few of my drives from the RAID set up and sell them off. What's the best way to prevent my needing to reinstall everything from scratch? Any software in particular that can help me image everything as is now, and then load that image after reinstalling Windows?

I would like to know about this too. I had a client who wanted to de-raid his drives without a fresh install and I couldn't figure out how to do it.

Can't you just Image it using DriveImage XML you are not Imaging disks and their strips with that.

Keep the SATA mode to RAID and Image it back to a single disk bigger then the partition you Imaged since you can run a disk as non-RAID under raid mode.

And if that don't work run the CD/DVD of the OS to fix the boot after.
