I have a 3TB WD drive that had a ZFS pool with another drive making a single 6TB partition. That other drive failed and corrupted the data on this drive, I am trying to recover this drive, not the data, just the drive.
I have tried to create a new partition on it using GParted which fails, I keep on getting input/output errors.
sudo parted -l
