I deleted one of vmdk files since the vm wouldn’t boot. The vm gave a space error so I tried to make space. I want to boot the vm to back it up. No luck and the entire day and part of the night searching for answers. Nothing.
Next morning; I found the mirror drive files in a 2.5 drive I had in my drawer luckily. I would hate to have lost the files.
Also , I export google drive data.
I now am uploading data to one drive , I have plenty of space there.
Updated: making a backup of flat vmdk —
Update 2: Deleted all Freenas files as I uploaded all data to cloud.
