    PC shut down while creating storage pool, now I can't access my external drive

    Using Storage Spaces, unable to add additional external drive to the pool

    I currently have two internal drives and an external drive in my storage pool. I want to add an additional external drive, but when I click Add Drive and it takes me to the selection screen, my drive doesn't appear. I can see it in explorer as well as
    my device manager. Any suggestions?
