Thanks in advance for sharing your great wisdom.
I frequently am asked to help people remove Malware from their computers’ hard drive. I have used BART PE and that sort of thing, but have found that the best way (other than the obvious “ideal” way of reformatting and reinstalling) is for me to simply remove the hard drive from the compromised computer, and mount it as a standalone drive off of my system, and then run the spyware, adware, virus removal utilities on it.
This works great, but I have never had to do this on a RAID-1 set of drives.
Can anyone tell me please the best way to accomplish this? I am not really in a position to just reinstall Windows, because it is a friends system that has a lot of software that would be difficult to reinstall.
I wonder if I should remove one drive and break the mirror, and then run my scans and utilities on the single drive. Then install it back in the other system and recreate a new RAID-1. I am unsure and a little apprehensive.
Does anyone have any advice or tips, or warnings? All off which would certainly be welcome!
Thanks very much!
