The PC that I have been running “FreeNas” on just went down the other day. I pulled the storage drive to keep all of the file safe. Then, I re-installed FreeNas and set it all up again, and that went fine.
The problem is, when I put the storage drive back in, it doesn’t recognize it. It sees it when I go to view all volumes and gives me this
Storage /mnt/Storage None (Error) Error getting available space Error getting total space DEGRADED
When I try to create a new path to this drive it does not show up in the browser
When I try to import the Volume, it sees it but says “the is a problem labeling the volume”
Of course, I can’t create a new volume without losing all of my files.
What do I need to do to either get FreeNas to access the drive
Or just get the files off to another drive?

I would get the files from it if at all possible. You could try booting from UBCD and see if you can get a recovery that way, or you can do a search for UFS recovery tools... that is the type of file system FreeNAS uses.

Were you running RaidZ or any raid mode, are the drives back in the ports they came out of?
