    Windows 10 Storage Spaces Can't access


    14 days ago, I emptied the recycle bin that contained about 300 gb of files from my storage space drive.


    Right after, the drive disappeared from windows explorer.

    The total drive is listed at 9TB but it is really 11.8tb. I am supposing used 8.5tb but I am not.


    I tried drive optimization, it ran and completed normally but nothing.

    it is showing an option to bring the drive online which I tried twice. Both times after it, I can see all the drives (6 in total) in Windows explorer but can't access them. After a few minutes, all 6 disappeared.


    I did the DISM scan and restore and nothing.


    Any thoughts??

    :)

    Cannot access Storage Space


    I've created a problem with Storage Spaces by changing the drive letter in Windows 10. This has caused a Storage Spaces error, and I can no longer see the Storage space in File Explorer.

    Disk Management shows the drive as unallocated.

    I now have the following situation. The 2 drives in the storage space are the ones shown as 931.5GB (or Disk 4 in the Management image). (it was originally set up as 10Tb but only 2 x 2tb physical disks initially)

    How to remove a bad drive in Windows 10 storage spaces pool

    Could someone list the steps involved in replacing a bad drive from a Windows 10 storage spaces pool? I cannot find any info on the Microsoft support site that is specific to Windows 10. Also, could you list the steps to remove a 'good' drive and replace
    it with another drive if the process is different?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
