I really don't know what to ask, but how can I "break" my current Raid of 3 hard drives so I can select different hard drives I have in there.

I have a SSD for my OS
I have 4 other hard drives
1 1.5 TB
and three other ones that are 2 tb

I wasn't aware if I put a 1.5TB drive into a array with two other 2tb that it would change the volume of the other two to match. I wanna take the 1.5tb out so I can add the other 2tb. How can I do that! I tried deleting the Array using the storage management service but the option is greyed out. Any suggestions?

I presume that you already know that all data on your RAID 0 will be lost. You should remove all 3 drives from the RAID 0 in the BIOS. Then recreate the RAID 0 using all three 2 TB drives.

I am aware that I will lose any data on it.

In my bios, there is no option to UN-raid the drives.

What heppens if you remove one drive? The BIOS doesn't detect it? If so, then did you create a software RAID?
