Is it possible to remove a quorum disk without having to destroy the entire cluster?
I have tried looking online for this but havent had much luck.

Removing the quorum disk doesn't destroy the cluster, and in fact you should add/remove it as you go from an even/odd number of nodes. Clusters with an even number of nodes should have a quorum disk, cluster with an odd number of nodes should not. Changing the quorum type is non-disruptive to the operation of a healthy cluster.

How do you do it within the gui or command line?

What is it that you are trying to get to? Do you now have a cluster with an odd number of nodes? Do you want to just move/recreate the quorum?

You need the quorum for your cluster, you should not get rid of it!
