depending on what raid setup you chose, this may not be an "easy" thing to do. If you have a raid0 array setup and break the array, you will lose the data on both drives.

legacy makes it pretend to be seperate IDE disks so that you don't need drivers or anything.

How many hard drives do you have in the PC?

How many show up under My Computer?

If the number is the same then you are not using RAID.

If there are more in the PC than shown in my computer it is probably RAID.

you need at least two physical drives to create any type of RAID

to quote Wikipedia
Fundamentally, RAID combines multiple hard disks into a single logical unit.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
