    I guess the only option is to create new virtual disk with Raid 0 with single disk as member

      Hi eXeIT,

      Leaving the customer with a non-redundant volume isn't ideal. Always make sure you have a working backup of the system before playing with the raid arrays. However, you should find you can migrate from a RAID1 to a RAID5.

      Regards,
