How to repair the drive from a drive failure in Windows 10 Storage Spaces

Copper Contributor

I have 4X 1TB drives configured as RAID 1. I assumed that meant that a copy of the data was also stored on the other drives since only 2TB of the 4TB is available. I found the failing drive and replaced it.I'm unable to remove the drive from the pool even though it's physically uninstalled. All 4 HD's (3 original, one new) show up as OK in Storage Spaces. I don't see the pool in Explorer.


What's the point of RAID if all your data is lost every time there's a failure. The is the 2nd time I've had a SS failure. First time I just said good bye to all the data, reformatted everything and started over.
