I'm currently using Windows 7 RC and have 4 internal HD's set up in RAID.
2 - 500GB drives in RAID 0
2 - 500GB drives in RAID 1
I use the RAID 1 drives for backup purposes only.
I have 3 partitions on Raid 0, named as follows: A:,B:,C:
I have the OS (Windows 7 RC) installed on C: partition and use the other two partitions for data.
Now that I will be moving the Full version soon, I will be doing a clean install.
Here's my question:
1. Can I just do a clean install on my C: partition of RAID 0 drives?
2. Will that wipe out the data on the other partitions? If no, will that data be accessible after the clean install of the OS?
3. Will the install wipe out the data on RAID 1 drives? If no, will that data be accessible after the clean install of the OS?
I built my system recently with brand new drives and Windows 7 RC. I installed the RAID driver
and setup the RAID in bios before installing the current OS (software RAID?).
