    Gone for a tasty deal on Dell Outlet.

    Is it easy enough to change this to raid 0 so i can utilise all the hard drive space on both hard drives or will i lose all data and have to reinstall windows?

    Currently its set for raid 1 so its mirrored and will only see 250 GB.

    (2 off 250GB SATA drives in total)

    Thanks.

    Steve.

    Yes you will lose the data, the recovery cd's that dell supply will probably allow you to reinstall as was after breaking the raid though.
