Is there any way to restart a data import into TrueNAS Core from a USB drive

Hi Guys,

I’m trying to find out if its possible to restart somehow a big (11TB) data import from an external USB drive formatted as ntfs.

I plugged the drive in and it seemed to start working fine. It transferred about 4TB over 12 or so hours but this morning I found that it had just stopped for no apparent reason (no errors I could see in the logs anyway) and I can’t seem to start it again (it throws errors about “Seperator not found and chunk exceeded limit” along with a bunch of python exceptions).

I guess the inbuilt software isn’t happy about starting again with data already on the target disk.

So… is there a way I can manually mount the disk and perhaps something like RSync I can use to pick up where I got too with the transfer?

I’m not seeing much online that helps me so far.


SSH into the system and use RSYNC would probably be the best way.

Thanks Tom,

I tried mounting the drive from the shell, but have now hit this one

root@cwpstorage[~]# kldload fusefs
root@cwpstorage[~]# mount -t ntfs-3g -o ro,allow_other,nonempty,relatime /dev/da8p2 tmpmnt
mount: /dev/da8p2: Operation not supported by device

The fusefs load line came from another post that suggested it should allow the mount.

Any ideas?

Not something I have tested because we move the data via the network over to the TrueNAS system.
