Windows 2003 Systemmax box with Sata raid 0 hard drive partion problem

Posted on 2006-05-08

I have a SystemMax box running Windows SBS 2003 on which only one partition of a 250GB drive was formatted.  That one formatted section comprises only 5% of the hard drive space.  The other partition was not formmated so it cannot be accessed.  How do I format the remaining space on the disk?  Do I need to take one of the hard drives out and run the SATA/RAID program again that came with the box?  Once that is run on one of the drives will it format the other when RAID is restarted?
Thanks for the help.

    Use disk management inside of Computer Management. You can create partitions and format them just like it is any other type of drive

    Good Luck,
