I have two gmirrors on my machine. Both are showing up as degraded. These are brand new drives that I just installed (so I don't mind blowing up the configuration and re-doing things).
I followed this guide to get going as I have no experience with gmirror...
So I made a blunder today. I was working on the tensorflow 2.x port and I was clearing up getting ready to commit it to git. During the clearing up, I went to rm some test files I had, but during my impatience, I tab completed the name which complete to files/ and deleted all my patches for...
I was planning to use a second hard disk as a backup for documents and files. I'm not sure what format to use ext4 / ntfs / ufs to be able to access it from FreeBSD and Win10 since I have dual boot. When I was using Linux I used a program from Windows to access ext4., But with ufs I don't know...
Why not ZFS by default?
Images are compressed before distribution. I assume that compression is very effective for:
non-used space (free, never used) in file systems
non-used swap space.
Why is there so little free space in the file system for the base OS?
Why is so little of the disk given...

After 13.0 is released and the dust settles down, I'm going to move my workstation (mostly used for neuroscientific computations with R, Julia and Python) from Debian to FreeBSD (this will be my very first time with the system). I have several questions regarding the process, but first...
I am a relatively new user of FreeBSD. For the past 15 years I have been managing a small server farm all running Debian or Ubuntu. Not thrilled with the way these distributions have been progressing, so thought I would give FreeBSD a whirl. Some things in particular that piqued my interest are...
Happy and healthy 2021 to every and each one!
This is my story: I've just built a FreeBSD machine to use primarly as a NFS/ZFS home server. CPU is a Pentium G4560 (7th gen), case NAS 800, MoBo mini-ITX, 32GB ECC mem and 5x 4TB HDD Toshiba N300.
MoBo has only 6 SATA connections in...
So, I decided to upgrade my home server and add some disks. Previously I used just graid3 for backup disk, now decided to use graid3+graid5+gconcat together:
# graid5 status
Name Status Components
raid5/parem COMPLETE CALM (safeop) da0...
I have several servers with large UFS partitions (>100TB).
Physically it is RAID-6 on MegaRaid 9361.
If i try to run fsck on them, i get same error on all servers:
** Phase 5 - Check Cyl groups
fsck_ffs: inoinfo: inumber 18446744071562087424 out of range
inumber is exact same on...
I would like to migrate a virtual machine's filesystem onto a smaller virtual disk using dump.
I have tried both using the 12.1-RELEASE installer in live CD mode, and also attaching the disks to a separate VM running 12.0-RELEASE, but dump keeps failing on me with "unknown file system".
Hello, I have a physical FreeBSD server I installed using ZFS on root. To ease maintenance I'd like to move it into a virtual machine (VMware ESXi), but since virtualizing ZFS is not recommended, I would like to convert it to UFS. Here's my plan so far, can anyone confirm whether I am on the...
I use it for development, you know, Programming 'n stuff... :) I also use it for ZFS, since I keep backups of my friends' and family members' data. :) I also use it for other things, like when I use Linux, but want more of a UN*X-y feel. It also speaks to how good of an OS it is when I...
Hello BSD people,
I would write here because the sentences are divided on this topic.
I set the partition according to this description: http://www.wonkity.com/~wblock/docs/html/ssd.html

I have a USB2, external hard drive, formatted under UFS. It was working perfectly, but after an electric black out, im not able to mount or fsck the external drive anymore.
