Format Hard disk Array

Hello all,

I am trying to format a 320 GB disk drive as single storage that was once used on a motherboard as a Raid 0 array. I can format the disk drive as NTFS via a USB cable, but when I try and connect the drive internally on the motherboard, the computer does not see it. When I go to disk managment to try and initialize hhe drive, it list the drive as a array and gives me an error. I have tried this a couple times and am at a loss as to hoe to get rid of the "Array" name disk managment says it is.

Any help appreciated in advance,

Joe

If you can't delete the existing "partition" to blank the drive using Windows' built-in program, then download Partition Wizard. It's free and will easily do the job for you.

Format hard disk prompt
I have an external harddisk that is encrypted using TrueCrypt. Each time I plug it in Windows prompts me to format the disk because it doesn't have any recognizable file system. Vista didn't use to do this. I suppose it's because of the UAC changes and a user couldn't normally do this in Vista. ...
