Accidentally created a raid 0 volume with two SSDs

Hello,

 

While trying to initialize a new SSD, using RST I accidentally created a raid 0 volume with both SSDs that are in my system. This includes my C:/ drive with important files and such.

 

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Do you have a backup of your important files and such?

I don't have a backup at the moment, one could be made.

Should I make the backup, then go bios to remove raid, wiping drives in the process, and restore?

Make the backup first regardless of what else you do.  I am only advising the backup.

Yes, the process would be to make a backup of the drive, reboot and use BIOS to remove the drives from the array and then restore the drive from the backup. Obviously, it is important to have a backup software package that supports boot and restore.
