It is by default that if a drive of any type is affected by virus and the drive is the one in which Windows is installed the other drives get affected very quickly as there can me many applications accessing or using other drives.

Even if windows are not installed in the affected drive there are lot of chances that the virus in the drive will affect the other drives at it tends to spread for malfunctioning.

Install a good antivirus or buy a antivirus and scan and clean all the drives so that they will be no chance of virus in your computer.

Try doing it fast as it depends on the virus it may even corrupt your hard disk and you may have to format everything. And data can be lost or get corrupted.

Hello, off course it will affect because the raid concept its self the combination of the multiple hard drive or the physical drive which inter connected of the depended on one another, hence if any on the hard drive get effected with virus that will be easily transfer the related information to another that mean, in any one of the hard drive get affected by the any one of the virus will be translated to another drive through the connection configuration. As the raid featured as to spread the data one another form the input as its strength for the safety and fast reaction. That had become the weakness by the same feature.
