Hello I am new to proxmox, linux, and zfs. I came across these 4 options when trying to add zfs storage. Can someone please explain what these 4 options are? I currently have 2 ssd nvmes setup in raid1 if that helps to know.

Those are the pools root and the 3 datasets on your pool. Usually you don't want to add any of them and only use "rpool/data" which should exist by default (storage called "local-zfs") so you don't have to add it.

The only reason I want to add one is because I accidently delete the zfs-local storage so now I can only see the local one. How do I get zfs-local back? Or do I need to do a complete reinstall?
