You didn't post enough information to get a useful answer.

Yes.

I left my crystal ball at the gym. Were you going to mention what tools you used to create the RAID?

hi,

First stop the raid using the command "mdadm --manage /dev/md0 -- stop".

then unmount the directory where the raid partition is mounted by "umount your directory name".

then you can delete the partition.
