Hi.

By secure erase, do you mean a format/scrub? I dont think its strictly required, but I would break the RAID and do each disk seperately.

This is what I was trying to do... well not the reinstall windows part, I was going to restore from an acronis image.

Thanks for the response, I actually hit enter before reading your reply and the drives are being scrubbed while still in RAID.
