    Hello All

    I had a drive fail in my Storage Spaces. Unfortunately i have not been able to get this resolved or remove the failed drive.

    The fail drive when its connected to the computer clicks, is unreadable, and causes storage spaces in the control panel to crash and not open. So i am trying to remove the bad drive from the simple virtual disk but i just cant. The drive is currently disconnected and i get the following issues in power shell:

    PS C:\Windows\system32> get-virtualdisk

    FriendlyName ResiliencySettingName OperationalStatus HealthStatus IsManualAttach Size
    ------------ --------------------- ----------------- ------------ -------------- ----
    ServerSS Simple Detached Unhealthy False 13.6 TB

    PS C:\Windows\system32> get-physicaldisk

    FriendlyName SerialNumber CanPool OperationalStatus HealthStatus Usage Size

    Bad False Lost Communication Warning Retired 1.82 TB
    TOSHIBA MD04ACA500 25Q5K1O8FS9A False OK Healthy Auto-Select 4.55 TB

    PS C:\Windows\system32> $DiskToRemove = Get-PhysicalDisk | Where-Object { $_.Usage -eq Retired}

    PS C:\Windows\system32> Remove-PhysicalDisk -PhysicalDisks $DiskToRemove -StoragePoolFriendlyName ServerPool"

    Confirm
    Are you sure you want to perform this action?
    Removing a physical disk will cause problems with the fault tolerance capabilities of the following storage pool:
    "ServerPool".
    [Y] Yes [A] Yes to All [N] No [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help (default is "Y"): y
    Remove-PhysicalDisk : The storage pool could not complete the operation because the health or operational status of
    one or more virtual disks in it does not permit it.

    Any advice? Really need some help. If i cant remove the one listed as bad the pool wont work.

    I dont care if the data is lost off that drive. it shows only 0.3 utilized on it.

    Any ideas?
