I did contact Storj Labs about and need help, haven’t received response.

What should I do?

So your drive died and you lost all your stored data?

The backup will not help. Every backup will be outdated on time of the made. As soon as you restore from the backup, your node will be disqualified for losing pieces since backup time.

You should use the instead. This email address does not automatically redirected to the support.


Yes, around 8TB lost.

So do you know what to do now or was this thread not helpful yet?

Start a new node. There is nothing else you can do if you lost data. Do you want us to try to find it for you?


If the data is gone your node can’t be recovered. The only option you have is to start over. You would need a new token and you have to create a new identity. It’s basically just a matter of following all the setup steps again.
