I’m running into an issue with pinning: I have the hash of a file which I want my local go-ipfs node to download and pin. I tried running “ipfs pin add <file_hash>” but this gives me the following error:
Error: pin: merkledag: not found
Upon further reading, I understand that’s happening because the pin command expects an object and not a file hash. However I don’t know how to get the object of a file via its hash! Can anyone please explain how you can download and pin a file when all you know is the hash of that file? Thank you.
