You must boot your Mac in recovery mode (CMD-R while booting), mount, and run First Aid on the disks through the Disk Utility there. YOU MUST use the recovery mode Disk Utility to repair; it will not appear in your booted Disk Utility.
 
I hope that someone finds this useful. I thought I had lost years of music production backups, but i was able to save it with this method. Will be switching to a different brand of drives.
