I have an enclosure Hornettek Dual Bay SATA Case with removable disk trays, and RAID0, RAID1. USB3.0 and eSATA dual bay case with two 2T WD drives. My idea was to set them up as separate drives to have 2 backup drives.
Accidentally I formatted both drives as one. I guess that created something like a RAID0.
I want to break that, to be able to have the backup system I need. Disk Utility is not helpful, as even though the enclosure is set as Port Multiplier, my Mac will still read the drives as one single drive & volume. Can I separate them with Terminal?
It is safe to completely delete them as I still have not copied any information onto them?
When I use diskutil this comes up:
/dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.3 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 499.4 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *4.0 TB disk1 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS Untitled 4.0 TB disk1s2
So disk 1 are the two 2T WD.
