I dont see a way to remove safeguard from my drives (windows 10, softraid XT 2.1.1.3). I pulled these drives from my mac formatted thunder bay 8 into a mercury quad.

The issue you are running into is the Windows version does not yet recognize the RAID 5 structure, so cannot remove safeguard.

Can you connect the drives to the mac for a bit and either zero the disks, or create the volume (I assume RAID 0) for Windows then connect it up?

other wise you need to use some command line stuff to refresh the disks.

@softraid-support yeah I got them back on mac and did it there, thank you. One more question: the drives seem to sleep VERY fast on windows (after maybe 30 seconds idle), is there somewhere to change that, or is that in windows? While editing photos in capture one they go to sleep and then take a bit to spin up again, slowing down editing while I wait.

That is a Windows controlled function. Go to your energy management and change it from the default, and you should be good.
