Please share the URL from "journalctl | paste" and "mount | paste" about 20-30 seconds after boot so we can see how the drives are being mounted and if the kerrnel logs any error messages. Ignore lrusak message - it was late when he replied and his eyeballs didn't make it past the /dev/loop0 device to where the real issue is
That was it?? chewitt
have the disks ever been in an RAID ?
I remember an simular bug years ago under Fedora.
the fix was to overwrite (not formatting only) the whole disk(s) with pattern/zero's (after an backup) to get rid of an RAID-signatur somewhere on the disk.
Houston, why is "shr<put the 5th letter from abc here>d" a censored word ???
They were never in RAID, none of the 7 drives. It only happened when I used too many files and when I was already deleting a lot of files since then that is, but I have formatted each disk and it still is.
