the config file didnt exist, I tried creating it but it wouldn’t let me (same reason
structure needs cleaning) so I googled it and tried
e2fsck to ‘fix’ the disk. It deleted everything inside my storagenode data folder.
I can restart the storagenode just fine now. But I assume my reputation will have taken a big hit for this as it deleted a good 200GB worth of files. (Though interestingly enough it only deleted storj files, nothing outside of that folder)
I’m a total linux noob and this was probably an OTT course of action to take. Not sure why it happened in the first place, the power hadn’t been disrupted, afaik everything was fine until watchtower tried updating it.
If this happens again in future, is there a less destructive path I can take?
