I dropped the top of my desk on one of my external hard drives when moving it. Interestingly enough, I thought the disk might survive it. But no, it is DOA.
Luckily Rockstor is one backup of many. I start up the Rockstor machine, but everything is stalled. I can’t really view or delete the pools or anything like that in the web UI.
I removed the disk in question because it is going to have to go into the bin. But really what I want to achieve is removing the pool that is broken.
If I drop out into the command line I get this,
[root@nas ~]# btrfs fi show

devid 4 size 3.64TiB used 2.26TiB path /dev/sdc
*** Some devices missing
How in the command line can I delete the NewPool?
An additional question I suppose as an alternative, can I install Rockstor on a USB stick?
