Storj uninstall fully

I’m having issues with the VM I loaded this on. I want to fully remove storj, and free up any space allocated to it. How do I do this?
Once I have it fully purged here I’m going to spin up a dedicated VM for it to run on.

Hey @tjcstuart , welcome to the community. If you plan on still running a node you should keep the data and identity, otherwise you would lose payout, lose escrow and reputation and need a new invite token. You can find information on how to keep your data and identity save while moving to a new machine or VM here.

Is your issue related to storj? Perhaps you could share some more info and we could help you fix it without starting over.

It was running fine for awhile, but about a week ago the node just would not start back up.
The VM I have it on now is also my media server and I don’t want to reset it to start over. So I want to fully purge everything storj related, including docker, from this VM so I can spin up one dedicated to stroj.
The data/identity is actually on a shared storage, outside the VM itself. So I could get away with leaving that if it’s better to…

You do not need to uninstall anything, this is a charm of the docker - just stop and remove the container and deal done.
You also can run a docker system prune command and confirm the cleanup

yes, definitely leave that. If you’re going to get rid of the VM, just stop the node safely first with docker stop -t 300 storagenode
After that you can just install docker on a new VM and follow the normal instructions. Point the run command to the same locations you used before.
