    How do I disable or reformat a RAID array so it is not journaled?

    The RAID is at /volumes/12TB RAID6
    And is designated disk6s2

    I can't seem to figure out the syntax to make this work in terminal, and I don't want to screw up my other disks.

    I didn't have this problem on Snow Leopard, but now on Mountain Lion, I can't get my regular HFS+

    ----------

    By the way, I have been trying this:
    diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ /volumes/"12TB RAID6" "RAID6" /dev/disk6s2

    ...and get
    /volumes/12TB RAID6 does not appear to be a valid volume name for its file system

    So I seem to be lacking proper syntax... help!

    Ok, so now:
    diskutil eraseVolume HFS+ RAID6 /Volumes/12TB RAID6

    ...results in:
    The third parameter does not appear to be "bootable" or "nonbootable"

    This is a RAID via an Areca 1880ix-12 card that needs to be non-journaled. The volume was created on Snow Leopard, and since then I've gone to Mountain Lion, and it was fine until I rebuilt the array using Disk Utility which no longer offers non-journaled volume creation.
