    Physical drives in Storage Space are okay, but I cannot ac


    In the Storage Pool section, I get this error message:


    Drive or Storage Space issues; Check Physical Drive and Storage Spaces sections.

    In the Storage Spaces section, I get this error message:

    Error Inaccessible; check the Physical Drives Section

    In the Physical Drives section, all 4 2T drives are checked as okay and have either 49.6% of their capacity used or 49.8% of their capacity used.

    These drives are in a 4 disk enclosure that can be attached either by eSATA or USB 3.0. I get the same error under either attachment method.

    I am guessing that the virtual disk information, metadata, is corrupt and the data on the four drives is not recognized as a storage pool any more. The device manager shows the disks individually, and the storage pool. is not recognized. In the Storage Spaces section of the Control Panel, the storage pool is recognized, but inaccessible.

    Since the data on the disks appears to be good, is there a way to rebuild the virtual disk data. Parity is the redundancy method.

    Thanks, in advance, for your help.
