In Disk Management, you cannot remove a drive from the existing RAID array but instead of deleting the entire volume. The wizard can handle striped volume (RAID 0) and RAID-5 volume. After a drive has been removed, the capacity of the RAID array will reduce and the result won’t have an effect on other drives.
