I have been having issues with my DAW and I have most of them worked out, but I just found a new one.

I removed a raid set up as I need to use the 2 internal hard disks separately. Where I should have a c drive a recovery drive and then a second internal drive, it looks like I have a c drive, recovery drive, copy of c drive, copy of recovery drive.

First how do I determine which of these is on which internal disk? Next how to I get rid of the partitions to make this just show the 2 drives I have?

I've ran into that one before, and I didn't really find a good solution for it. In my case, the drive detected as the wrong letter and I couldn't use the standard drive manager letter reassignment because the drive letter that one of the drives needed to be was c:. I renamed it in the registry, but the end result was a "ghost" drive that had all the same data in it, but as a different letter. Basically c:\text.txt and f:\text.txt would open the same file. I finally ended up having to format the drive to get it to work properly. You might be able to use a partition manager to fix it, but that might also make it worse.

I think there may be a fix. All of my changes I have made show up on the C drive not the duplicate. I think if I work thru them and delete the data on the copied drives then use a partition manager to merge them back the the C drive I might be good.

Can I just use the Vista tools for this or do I need to look for a program to do this?
