In installed an enrcypted Linux on an separate SSD. In the Install process i choose ZFS.

In Caja (1.26) i saw these Folder and wonder why i get this, so i just want to get rid of it, because i dont need or want to use it.

enter image description here

How get rid of it? I excepted to just hide the Devices via a simple Action.

Warnings i get when i try open the Drives:

Error mounting /dev/sdc4 at /media/user/rpool: unknown filesystem type 'zfs_member'
Error mounting /dev/sdc3 at /media/user/rpool: unknown filesystem type 'zfs_member'

And the last Device:

No key available to unlock device/dev/sdc2

$ zpool status -P pool: bpool state: ONLINE config:

    NAME                                               STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
    bpool                                              ONLINE       0     0     0
      /dev/disk/by-partuuid/xxxx-2023-cxxx6-axxb-xxxx  ONLINE       0     0     0
errors: No known data errors

  pool: rpool
 state: ONLINE
config:

    NAME                                                STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
    rpool                                               ONLINE       0     0     0
      /dev/disk/by-partuuid/xxxxxa-510c-8xx2-bxx7-1xxx  ONLINE       0     0     0

TLDR: ZFS is a good tool, but without any knowledge on it (and your question is clear on that), you will go the hard way.

What your see in Caja are not folders but ZFS pools (detailed in the response of the zpool status you share).

Your are not supposed to mount those pools, your data & system are already mounted somewhere else on children of those pools called ZFS datasets.

bpool is a common name for boot pool and rpool for root pool.

If you run zfs list -r you will have more details about the relation between ZFS objects (datasets) and your local filsystem (identified as MOUNTPOINT).

Now you need to document yourself a bit more before going further. Enjoy discovering ZFS (-;
