I have a Raid 5 (4 x 2 TB HDDs) that I want to convert over to a non raid, but keep all the data. I don't have a way to store all that data anywhere else.

I setup my raid using Intel Rapid Storage Technology program.

Ok, no response, found a possible work around though.

Borrowed some externals, so I'm able to move some of the data. But not enough. Can I remove dish from the raid 5, reformat it and then use that disk to transfer the remaining data on the raid 5 to it?

It is best that you use an external storage to transfer the rest of the files. Reconstructing a broken set is quite lots of time to wait.

Yeah you will have to back it up onto externals, when you delete the raid array it makes the data unusuable.

I would use Carbonite.com. It's cheap and unlimited, and especially hand for situations like this. There are other off site back up solutions but this is my favorite.
