Capture.PNG 38.38KB 0 downloadsI recently picked up a new hard drive, and rather than adding it as a new drive to my system, I decided I'd try windows 10's Spanned Volume feature, as I had some stuff on there that I needed to keep under the same drive letter (D:) The performance was abysmal. Much longer load times than I was willing to deal with. I'd like to format the drives now, but I'm having lots of trouble doing so. I've tried the basic format option of right clicking the drive, then I went to Disk management to remove the volumes, but the "Delete Volume" option is greyed out. I then tried using DISKPART to delete the volumes, but no luck there either. Anyone able to help? I've backed up all data from the original drive, and i'd like to start fresh with the 2 drives in a raid-0 configuration if that's possible. The drives are both WD 1 TB. Not the exact same, but they are the same capacity and both are 7200 rpm.
Attached is a screencap of the disk management window
