I have a Lacie big disk two drive raid 0 HD.
I would like to use these two drives as separate "normal" drives. Is there any way to separate them?

1) Backup all data
2) Destroy the RAID config
3) Create partition(s) on each drive
4) Format each partition
5) Restore data from backup

Cheers ... McBie

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

disk utility

Example: 1TB big drive - erase and make 2 500GB partitions, format HFS (or leave it default) and off you go!

Well, that's what I did try first, also, just erased the drive to see if that would make it two..., but as far as I understand, it will partition the two drives still in a raid 0 set, means half and half twice. Actually, right now I have four partitions on it.
I just don't get you, partitions and physical drives are in my opinion two different things, isn't that so???

What tool did you use to create the RAID 0 initially ?
I assume you need the same tool to undo the RAID ( un-group )

Then you will have 2 separate disks in Disk Utility and you can start creating partitions on each of them.

It seems Disk Utility can't break the RAID, is this the factory RAID?
