Turning deduplication off, only stops new blocks from being deduplicated. Any data written while deduplication was on, are still deduplicated. You would need to zfs send | zfs recv, or backup/destroy/restore to get the data back to normal. If the drive is making that much noise, have you considered that the drive might be failing? -- Allan Jude _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
