I reinstalled Windows and FuzeDrive. Why does it say I already have a FuzeDrive before I create one?
You most likely installed Windows on top of the raw disk drives without first cleaning them completely of all metadata. FuzeDrives use hidden parts of the disk that a normal Windows partition erase cycle during setup does not wipe clean properly. This can result in a boot drive with old FuzeDrive metadata on it.

If you have already installed Windows on top of an old FuzeDrive set of disks and the FuzeDrive utility is not allowing you to re-transform an existing boot drive, exit the FuzeDrive utility and issue the following command from an Administrator command line prompt:
> ecmd --delete_all
Restart the FuzeDrive utility, and you should now be able to properly convert the boot or data drive.
