    • Can't mount drive that was UFS formatted as BTRFS in OMV

      I have a Western Digital 4TB drive that was previously used in a NAS4FREE NAS formatted as UFS. This drive is now in my OMV 3.0.99 NAS.

      I was able to mount the drive as UFS and copy the contents to the other BTRFS formatted disks in the NAS, and now I'm trying to reformat and add the drive as another BTRFS formatted drive to use as an active share etc.

      The drive has been wiped securely from the physical disks menu and when trying to add a new logical drive formatted as BTRFS it's throwing the following error when trying to apply the changes.

      I have also tried to wipe the disk from the command line with dd if:/dev/null etc and still have the same result.

      Looking at parted -l for sbd I can see that it's recognised at btrfs....
