Windows 7: Problem with permissions on RAID 1

Problem with permissions on RAID 1

First a BIG HELLO to all members and moderators of these forums.

My problem is on a 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate system. I have 5 hard drives of which 2 are setup as RAID 1 on Gigabyte mobo so-Giga RAID, they are for data only. The problem I am having is twofold;

1-I cannot "save to" the RAID drive(s) even when I was editing a file on it I first have to save it to another drive, then from Explorer I can copy it to the Data Raid.

2- As you all know, when you right click on a file or folder you have among other options copy, cut, delete, rename. Besides copy the other options are simply missing, not grayed out, just not there at all.

I cannot cut, delete, rename files from safe mode nor from Win XP (yes, I still have it installed on one of the drives). All this is only regarding the RAID 1 drive(s). No problems with the other Hard Disks.

I have full rights/permissions for all users/groups but it doesn't change anything.
All files/folders are Read-only the moment they are moved to the RAIDed drive.
Any changes I try to make just revert back to Read-only. Taking ownership does nothing.
Can it be Windows 7 being over protecting or the RAID itself? Should I reinstall windows or delete the RAID 1 array?

If possible I need a permanent solution so, not from the command line.
