Removing Logical Disk

I have 2 logical disks in 1 Array. I want to remove 1 logical disk. But when I try to modify the array I get a warning that all logical disks will be lost! I want to keep the first logical disk. Is there a way to do this?

Re: Removing Logical Disk

More than likely the logical disk is setup as a RAID 5 and that's why if you delete one logical it will delete all. If it was setup as a RAID5 for one logical and a Raid 0 or 1 for the second logical then you can delete one of the logical drives. But since it's RAID 5 and it stripes the data across all Hard Drives you will lose the entire array.
I hope this helps.
