I originally tried running Freenas 8.0.1 on my wifes tiny old old old laptop that had a broken screen and used a 300gb western digital external hard drive to store some stuff on. I was able to load it as ZFS.
I unplugged the hard drive and got a new NAS and tried to auto import it (laptops gone). I couldn't, even with the same version. I'm currently running version 8.2 beta 2.
When I try to import the volume manually as NTFS (the hard drive itself is NTFS but I was using it as ZFS on the NAS) It says "An error occured while labeling the disk." Of course trying to import it as UFS or something tell me "The selected disks were not verified for this import rules." (perhaps fix the grammar here?) The disk is listed in drop down box as "da1p1"
When I try and auto import it's listed as "Reonika [zfs, id=13991700670287433343]" I get "Error: The volume Reonika failed to import, for further details check pool status"
I'm not sure how to check pool status.
Is there any way I can save the data I had saved to this drive? I'd like to recover the data and continue using it as an external hard drive as I now have two 2tb drives mirrored on the new NAS.
