I have been using the enclosure for about 2 years in Raid 1. The other day I got an error message (attached) saying my disk needed to be formatted before use. Canceling resulted in an error message (attached) saying the disk was not accessible and that there was no recognizable file system. HDD1 light was flashing blue/red.

I purchased a new drive to replace HDD1. When I inserted it, the following happened: Rebuild light came on and red x next to HDD1 came on. Red/blue flash with rebuild light on for about 4 hours. Rebuild light went off and HDD1 and HDD2 lights were blue. Clicked on the drive in file manager and got the same issue.

What should my next steps be?

Thanks in advance for your help.

before you replaced HDD1
were you able to access the Raid array?
if you didn't them is possible both drives went bad or 1 drive went bag
and caused drive 2 to loose partition table? Did you check under disk management to see what you see there?

after rebuild finished has you turn off enclosure yet?
