After a lot of manipulation mistakes, is it possible to extract the data from a HDD which was mirrored in ZFS, but with a destroyed pool (even zpool import -D does not work) ?

"destroyed" how?? "import does not work" how? Error messages? –  Chris S Jun 18 '12 at 17:45

1 Answer 1

befor you import with -D look if more pool exist.

zpool import that lists all pools

example: you destroyed pool name is tank1 than import with: zpool import -Df tank1
