Recovering from a recent crash, windows decided to wipe the storage space I had that contained 2.6tb of media. Ignoring that fact, I'm trying to get things set back up. Windows 8, I can access the drives themselves with no problem, individually, but storage spaces shows only 1 drive, no information, and it's unusuable. Now, if I plug the same drives into my other computer, it works fine, can even create the storage space. But if I switch it back over, then suddenly it's and unrecognized configuration. I've rebooted, formatted, swapped USB ports, switched to a hub and back, and I cannot get windows to recognize the drive in storage spaces. Computer management shows them fine, and as I said I can access them using the drive letters with no issue. Any suggestions on how to proceed with this?

 

Also, it's a fresh install of windows, although it did install nearly 200 updates yesterday.
