"hdd 2tb raid0 and hdd 2tb raid1, had to format raid 1 hdd, so problems with data"

I assume you're just referring to HDD labeling? RAID-0 & RAID-1 are two different things. It would help to know what type of RAID array you're working with.

"without the both hdd's in Raid windows won't start up. SSD is not raid"

The SSD has Win7 installed on it, correct? Temporarily disconnect the 2 HDDs, disable RAID in the BIOS, then see if you can boot into Windows. If you can, problem solved. You can then temporarily disconnect the SDD to protect it, then boot off your favorite disc of choice (HDD manufacturer's software, UBCD, etc) to repartition & format the two HDDs. Once that's done, just reconnect the SSD & you should be good to go.

hi OtheHill, don't want to create new raid, but get rid of that. all data lost with hdd failer. so want to have two single hdd 's for backup video and photo's. But on the ssd is win7 and special progs for making blue ray video, that's what i want to keep safe. but without the both hdd's in Raid windows won't start up. SSD is not raid

The comments by storage master indicate you should be able to use any backup software to create a backup that you can then apply to the single drive.
