Hi, I found bad sectors at /dev/sda with proxmox 5.3 filesystem.
My vm machine have disk at zfs pool at another hdd (mirror 3 hdd).
I copied /etc/pve catalog.
I backuped data from my VM.
Try add hdd for vzdump and backup the vm as qemu file.

But what after ? I have free /dev/sdb hdd. How copy /dev/sda to /dev/sdb ? dd ? Or manualy try copy files ?

P.s It`s possible to run proxmox backuped vm at vritualbox/vmware player etc ?
