All media marked as UNAVAILABLE after reformatting my drive

Hi all,

I currently have Plex set up on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian, with all my content on an external 4TB HD. I've been having some issues recently where certain directories would become unreadable - the content would be gone and I would be unable to delete the directory.

I thought perhaps it was my harddrive, but after buying a new one of a different brand and having the issues pop up again, I thought perhaps it was my format type. I wiped the drive, reformatted from exFAT to ext4, and reloaded all my content. The file structure is identical as before, but now Plex marks every single movie I have as UNAVAILABLE!

I've changed permissions on all directories to 755, but still can't get Plex to recognize any of my content. What do I do?!?
