Can't delete MergerFS mount point

  • I created a MergerFS mount point with two branches under the Union Filesystem and now I want to deleted that mount point. However, if I press deleted under the Union Filesystem tab, it says 'The configuration object is in use' and under the File Systems tab I'm not able to Unmount it (the Mount/Unmount buttons are greyed out).


    I did try and manually remove the line in /etc/fstab with the mergerfs mount point but the mount point still appears.


    Any suggestions?

  • No Samba shares at all. There is however some folders under Shared Folders, but they use the direct path (i.e. /media/hdd1/folder) and not the mount point path (i.e. /media/mount point/folder). Not really sure why they are there because I did remove them from Samba.

  • Do share folder belong to the mergerfs mount point even if they using the direct path? Beffy mentioned it a few post earlier and I wasn't sure about that point.

    There is however some folders under Shared Folders, but they use the direct path (i.e. /media/hdd1/folder) and not the mount point path (i.e. /media/mount point/folder).

  • Here you go. Two of the folders are on the 'wd_red_4tb_a' volume and the remaining three on the 'wd_red_4tb_b' volume (like this https://i.imgur.com/4EXWXSu.png)



  • Doesn't matter the shared folder is not shared any more (samba, ftp, etc) but they are still available. The column to the right says if is in use or not. You can delete them from there if you want just be careful on the options you select you can actually delete data.

  • Thank you, subzero79. The thing is that I don't know how to delete them without deleting the entire folder. If I press the 'Delete' button I'm just asked if I 'really want to delete the selected item(s)' which would result in deleting the entire folder on the harddrive. It's not a big thing though, I'm just wondering how I can these items in this Shared Folders tab.
