Starting >>> Storage Spaces is starting or waiting for drives to be connected in the pool. This should be a temporary state. Once completely started, the pool should transition to a different operational state.
Action: If the pool stays in the Starting state, make sure that all drives in the pool are connected properly.

source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-spaces/storage-spaces-states


The status displayed suggests that one or more drives are not connected at the time you used the Get-PhysicalDisk command in powershell.
Are the drives listed as starting connected and working correctly ?
Do other tools like Crystal Disk Info show any issues with those drives ?
Are you using power management to power off drives when that are not being used ?

its been 3 days, few reboots, so I don't think is temporary state.


drives are fine, according to crystaldiskinfo

Did you get this fixed?

Many people seem to be getting this "starting, ok" issue and end up toasting the storage space and starting again...
