    • MergerFS - how to vacate drive branch

      Hello community,

      I got a little overexcited about mergerfs and added a drive I want to keep separate, and then copied several TB of data to the mergerfs volume. I want to remove that drive from the mergerfs and move all the content that's been distributed to it to the other drives.

      What is a recommended method to do this? Perhaps something like mergerfs.vacate that I haven't found yet? Or can I just remove the drive from the union filesystem, then rsync the files from the drive to the mergerfs mount? I'd just like to know if I'm doing it a dumb/inefficient way, I guess.

      Thanks for these great projects!
