After reinstalling windows, what will happen to the merged disks?

In the system unit there are 3 disks (ssd + 2hdd)
hdd through Computer Management - Disk Management - Expand Volume combined into one disk (two disks seem to be one).
Will the files on these hdds be available after reinstalling windows 7 or not?

if this is a software "raid" created by the OS itself (the so-called spanned volume) - then nothing will happen if you choose to install on an ssd.
if raid0 is created by means of a chip on the mother, it's also basically nothing. it will be necessary only after installation to install the driver from this chip.

hdd through the regular functionality are combined into one disk (two disks seem to be one).
A functional is a function defined on an arbitrary set and having a numerical range of values.
There is no functionality in Windows, especially regular.
And what you did with the disks is unknown, there are many options for combining disks - RAID arrays of various types, disk spaces, mount points, etc.
To predict whether the data will be available after a reinstall, you need to know exactly how you mapped the disks.
