    BTRFS help with apt-btrfs-snapshot

    I installed apt-btrfs-snapshot

    Then everytime I added or removed something with aptitude it created a new snapshot... so I had hundreds of snapshots.

    I wrote deleted all the snapshots, cause everything was fine... and I did not delete the root "@" snapshot.

    But after doing that, my disk volume shows all the space is still in use, however all my files are gone!!!!

    Is there any way to get access to my files again without restoring everything from a backup?

    I rebooted and the files are back! woohoo!

    The good old reboot fixes everything!

    Huh... they files were there after the reboot... I did nothing... after checking back a few minutes later they're all gone again!!!

    Yet "df -h" still shows the volume is using the space for the files.

    You've got a love the old reboot trick

    I'll mark this thread as [SOLVED] for you.

    Thanks, I don't see how to mark threads as solved with this new interface....

    actually though it wasn't solved after my last comment...

    however, it sorta is now.... I did a "btrfs filesystem balance /mnt/drivepath" and the files seem to be accessible permanently now... although the CPU is really being torn up by kworker, btrfs and mdadm processes now. I read that might take a full day per terabyte, so I guess I'll check on it in a few weeks and see if everything is still okay.
