Hi Misa

Please Note the following process will remove you drive form storage spaces, it will also wipe that drive back to Unallocated Space

Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

Go to System - Storage

Click 'Manage Storage Spaces'

Click 'Change Settings' and if necessary, confirm that choice

On that drive, click 'Prepare for Removal'

That drive will be listed as 'Preparing for removal'

Wait until that drive is listed as ' Ready to remove', Click Remove - Remove Drive

Then open Disk Management (accessible by right clicking your Start Button

Right clcik the Unallocated space on that drive and choose 'New - Simple Volume' then accept the defaults

You will then have a full clean drive ready to use . . .
