Check if you can set up the disks as JBOD.

You said you didn't care about the data. So just remove and then check if you can set it up as JBOD. As far as I know the NAS stores it's settings in ROM, and also when you add new modules it stores them there, and not on the HD's. Even if ot does store them there, it shouldn't be any problem to get the modules again via the Synology Web config page.
