Windows 7: Reinstall windows what happen with mrirror drive

Reinstall windows what happen with mrirror drive

Hi All,

I have windows 7, I have 3 harddisks.
1 I use for my installation of windows
and on 2 harddisks I have my data but those 2 drives I made a mirror in Windows.

What, if I reinstall windows, do I lose the data or does windows split the mirror?
or do I have to save all my data to one disk?

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't take a chance but would backup data externally before reinstalling to target HD plugged in by itself.

Afterwards when you plug back in the data disks, format them before copying back on the data to the drives individually since unless you are working with huge video or other files there's no reason to risk mirroring the drives.
