#131 Hard Drive not in Format List following Config Restore

Using a clean install of Embedded x64 versions 775, 804 and 847, I'm able to import all of my disks (see Disk Management.png) and the Format list shows them all correctly (see Format.png). When I restore my original configuration (Backup/Restore -> Restore Configuration), the Fujitsu drive appears in Disk Management but is not visible in the Format or Mount Point lists. This is confirmed when looking at the disk_init.php source. I've checked my configuration XML and can't see anything obvious which would cause this. I noticed on the forum that a number of users have mentioned the same, however there didn't seem to be a conclusive answer hence why I've logged it here as I believe it may be a bug.

If anyone would like to view my config XML, please let me know and I'll be happy to provide it.

    I've had a good look at my config and I appear to have found the answer. I had two disks as part of a mirrored ZFS pool using ada1 and ada2. I moved the disks to ada0 and ada1 but didn't realise the config hadn't changed as well so when I tried to add ada2, the system thought it was already taken. Editing the config with the correct drive assignments enabled the new drive to show up in the Format list straightaway.
