Hi All, Ok, brief background to my query. I have two Western Digital Thunderbolt RAID enclosures with two HDDs in each (each drive is 3TBs) so 6TB in total per enclosure. It is software-based RAID 1. I am booting in and out of Windows through Bootcamp and unfortunately the MacRAID driver I have installed has caused more problems than I anticipated (with corrupt RAID set-up on one of the enclosures). So, I backed up my data and deleted the RAIDs on both enclosures. However, when I did that Disk Utility simply stated that if I deleted the RAID 1s the two drives would show up as two drives but the data would still be intact! I thought if one deleted the RAID all data would be lost? Now my problem. As I am now backing up my drives manually using CronoSync I get two instances of the same file, folder or whatever when using Spotlight - quite annoying - so would like to go back to RAID 1 if I can. Let's say that one drive would fail or the RAID gets corrupted. Can I simply take out one drive and use it on its own? I mean, is the data intact on the second drive as the computer writes to two drives simultaneously - if I take out the drive it's just as a normal drive - it does not contain any RAID info? Many thanks in advance! Regards.
