Use your favorite partition manager to do with partitions whatever you want.

MiniTool Partition tells me that it is bad disk and I cant recover partition because it is dynamic disk.

Recover is not the same as rebuild. Rebuild = delete and make again. Simply delete everything, so you have a totally empty disk, than create whatever you want.

But on a damaged disk it might not work.

Sorry, so I need to recover the files, but it would be better if I were able to recover all data in folders.

If, as you say, these drives are "completely fine", then why minitool partition wizard says it is a bad disk?

RAID 0 and recovery
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 29, 2018 8:31 AM PST

Will make for a very bad day if the owner is not backing up what they can't lose. RAID 0 recovery is usually answered with "nope." Rebuilding as Kees noted is done with the tools you used to set it up. Just wipe and set it up again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
