2 x 750GB harddrives but its on raid 1 so its mirroring as they call it.
Anyone know any software that will split this so I can still keep my files there?
Your question doesn't make sense...you say it's already mirroring (which makes two drives look like one), and you want it to be one drive again??
You don't say what version/distro of linux you're using, or if the drives are mirrored at the hardware level on the controller, or via LVM in Linux. Different mirroring requires different solutions.
If you didn't install it, and you don't maintain it, why not just tell the technicians to un-mirror it for you? No matter what, though...MAKE BACKUPS...there is NO absolutely foolproof solution, that has absolutely zero risk.
