How to reformat a drive that was in raid 0

hello. I just got an ssd and I wanted to use my old hard drive that was part of a raid 0 as a backup drive now. when I use disk management there is no option to reformat it, delete it. only thing I can do is initialize the disk but that does not work. can anyone help me? thank you :)

  1. I found out how. i had to go back into the bios and change it back to raid then go to the raid control(ctrl l) and delete the raid things from the two drives.
  2. That'll work. If you have this issue in the future, you could also go into the Drive Manager while still in AHCI mode and re-initialize the drive. If any partitions are visible, delete them first.

    Unasked-for opinion: Backup is much better than RAID0. RAID0 = high risk of loss. Backup = low risk of loss. My one cent's worth.
