rclifton Posted November 9, 2020 Share Posted November 9, 2020 (edited) Today being Sunday I was doing weekly housekeeping on my server and noticed that 2 directories on my server were suddenly empty!! The directory /downloads and TV/TV are empty, every file, sub folder etc GONE! I have no drives in a degraded state, no errors showing on any of the drives, I'm currently running a parity check to be sure but highly doubt it will find anything as one just ran on Nov 1ST and everything was fine. I have only 3 user accounts on this server, the root account, a backup account and a generic account. I control the passwords to all 3, no one else knows them and they are 16 char, randomly generated passwords so again, not something someone could get easily.. No other data is missing or affected, just those 2 directories, The only apps on the server that access them are sabnzbd, radaar, sonaar and delugevpn, I use the binhex containers for all of the above but they also have access to a number of other directories that are fine.. I access the /TV/TV from my PC as well as 3 MiTV boxes in my house, they all use the generic account with a password to access it and I rarely access the /downloads directory from my pc only. I'm not sure what to make of it at this point, it's VERY odd it's everything inside these 2 directories but the directories themselves are still there and just fine and the free/used space remains exactly the same as if the files were still there. I was watching TV last night until after midnight so I KNOW at least some of it was still there at that point. Is there a log or some other journal that tracks file deletions that I am unware of that might show what happened? Thanks, and sorry for the long rambling post I'm really scratching my head at this point as to what the heck happened and frankly slightly nervous about starting anything back up again until I figure out exactly what the heck happened! **EDIT** I can see that at least some, but hopefully all of the files are actually still there if I use krusader and look at the individual disks.. I'm just not sure why the directory within the share shows empty or how to actually fix it so that the files that are on the individual disk start showing within said directory on the actual share.. **EDIT 2** I see the log is filling up with : Nov 8 17:13:48 Tower kernel: BTRFS error (device md4): parent transid verify failed on 87638016 wanted 25935 found 25928 Nov 8 17:13:48 Tower kernel: BTRFS error (device md4): parent transid verify failed on 87638016 wanted 25935 found 25928 Nov 8 17:13:48 Tower kernel: BTRFS error (device md4): parent transid verify failed on 87638016 wanted 25935 found 25928 Just being spammed, I assume this means something happened to device md4, after I figure out which device md4 is would a btrfs scrub command fix the issue if anyone knows? I'm a bit hesitant to just start trying stuff. While I do have backups of everything, it would be a REAL pain to restore 12TB+ of data... Edited November 9, 2020 by rclifton Quote Link to comment
