A. When you delete a RAID 5 set in Windows 2000, you lose all the data that the set contains. Therefore, make sure you first back up your data.
To delete a RAID 5 set, perform the following steps:
- From the Start menu, select Programs, Administrative Tools, then the Computer Management Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in.
- Expand the Storage branch, and select Disk Management.
- Right click an element of the RAID 5 volume, and select Delete Volume… from the context menu.
- Click Yes to the confirmation.
Win2K will now list the space that the RAID 5 volume used as unpartitioned.
