Storm season is back, bringing with it the potential for significant weather events. If you have clients in areas prone to infrastructure disruption, visit the Disaster Recovery Resources guide for preparedness information. Datto recommends performing proactive disaster recovery testing to mitigate potential downtime.

File System could not properly remount. Please contact Support immediately and submit a ticket



Backups fail with error:

"File-System could not properly remount.  Please contact Support immediately and submit a ticket"


The ZFS file system's storage volume has become unmounted on the Datto. 

Most often, this occurs if during a restore or device operation (File Restore, Screenshot, Running Virtual Machine, Bare Metal Restore) the device experienced an unexpected shutdown.


A quick solution is to simply reboot the device and see if the error persists. Alternatively please submit a ticket or call Datto Technical Support as a Datto Technical Support team member can remotely remount the volume. It is rare to have this error re-occur, if it does please reference this when contact Datto Technical Support.
