The drive disappeared when I tried to create a storage pool.

지영 윤 0 Reputation points

When I clicked to create a storage pool and selected the drive, later I found that the drive had completely disappeared. It wasn't just formatted and left empty; the drive itself vanished from my computer. When I tried to activate the drive from the disk, it was empty. Does clicking once really cause the drive to format without any confirmation or warning?I really want to recover my drive, please.

    Hi 지영 윤,

    Hope you're doing well.

    How many affected machines are there currently? Are they physical or virtual machines?

    Ensure all disks are connected to your server. If servers are physical machines, open your computer case and verify that the data cable is properly attached to an appropriate port on the motherboard and that the power cable is connected to the power supply.

    Below is the relevant doc for your reference:

    There is no disk initialization button, so let's click Create a new simple volume The disk is available, but all the previous data is gone. Can't the data be recovered forever?
