I am involved in 2 bcachefs bugs on github: #189 and #190.
Both errors make the data unreadable.
I have 3 bcachefs filesystems,
1 not moved to alloc_v2 and all devices present,
1 never moved to alloc_v2 but 1 foreground/promote device missing
1 moved to alloc_v2 and 1 foreground/promote device missing
Like any good IT guy, I create backups of my data.
but, for how long is it useful to keep the "broken" filesystem for repair? When can I simply
reformat the fs and revert to backup?

I know I could do it immediately - but this erases the faulty setup which needs to be examined

kind regards,
