I am currently on a raid 1 setup with 2 SSD's. I would like to have the extra space so I want to get rid of the raid 1 configuration. What is the proper way to do this, and can i do it without losing any data? I am on windows 7 on a dell precision M4600.

Use windows backup to make a system image and full backup then break the mirror, format both drives, restore your imaage and backup to one drive only. Then initialize the remaining drive and you will have two drives.
