Hello Antonio,

I have removed all the snapshots of the volume.
This has been done as documented that is hammer snapls and then
I have noticed a peculiar behaviour though.
Im able to generate a transaction Id using hammer synctid
When I cd to the directory that is /Backup5/@@0x0000000108329000
Im able to see the data but cannot remove it as it is a read-only
I tried to null mount this and remove it to no avail.
Is there something Im still missing.
