Have (2) 80 gig drives setup in RAID1 software mirror. This server is just a VMWare server hosting a few machines. Not real intensive. Turns out I don't really need the RAID so much. I could rebuild the server quickly, and would rather use the second drive to have a backup of the VMs, which would then be copied to tape drive.
I could move the VMs, rebuild the server, then move them back. But I was wondering if there was a pain-free way to break the mirror, keeping the data on the first drive, and just convert it to a 2 disk setup.
