Has anybody ever lost data due to any bugs or anything like that? I'm
going to use this ZFS as my primary storage medium (and poor man's
backup solution), so I would be devastated if I lost my entire array
due to a bug or other issue (aside from losing two hard drives in a
three hard drive RAID-Z array).
I lost a mirror on 2 SATA drives when I installed a new mobo. A plain
ZFS concatenation of 2 partitions on a SCSI drive didn't get lost. I've
never lost data due to a crash.
If it was a zfs mirror, you probably could have recovered it with a forced
import or something similar.
Might have been pilot error. Might have had something to do with the
way the new mobo assigned the disks. Luckily I had a backup of the
really important stuff.
