Here's the situation I'm in.

  • I set up BTRFS with data in raid0 and metadata in raid1.
  • 1 of the drives failed and I've already ordered a replacement.
  • I made daily backups of the data to a separate backup drive so I haven't lost anything.

Is it possible rebuild the btrfs pool with the data from the backup? If so, how would I go about doing this?

If it's not possible I'll just recreate the fs and copy the backup data to it.
