@Joey1, welcome to the Rockstor community. As I don’t really use NFS exports, I can’t share any experience in that area. Did you check out this post:

I saw in some other places, that there might have to be a forced removal of exports. @phillxnet you possibly have more insights into this situation.

Hi @hooverdan, thanks for your help.
I read the linked issue.
Do you know if I’m I safe to delete the entries at /exports without deleting data?

@Joey1, sorry for the delay. To be honest, I have no idea, since I have not really been using NFS exports. I hope, someone else can chime in for that. As usual, to paraphrase @GeoffA “if you have a backup of your data, you can try many things” …
