Hi! Here's a video that might help! Have you right clicked the drives and given them a dive letter? You have a lot of data.Welcome to Windows Central. Let me know how things go for you! The drives have to be Initialized before they are recognized. Maybe other members will have more replies latter!

Hi friend! I have never been where you are. I do not understand a pool. Did you read the entire link from HTG that I attached. You upgraded to a new OS(W10)??? That's all I can find by searching your problem. Will you lose data?? IDK. Maybe another member has more suggestions for you!:wink: I have never know anyone with 4 external drives in a poll with that much data. That would scare me also. Good luck. Post back when you find a solution!
