I was getting weird behavior on my media drive...Like I couldn't cd into a directory that was there, etc...Then I figured I'd umount the drive and run fsck on it...I got this:
root@igueths:~# e2fsck /dev/sda1
e2fsck 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
e2fsck: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda1
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193
Not a very good thing at all...And when I try adding the -b option, I get the same message. Dumpe2fs shows that everything is there, its just some of the filesystem that seems to have taken a
shit. I hope I didn't just lose oh...about 90 GB of content? I am thinking there is a way I can repair the filesystem possibly by using debugfs or similar? Anyone perhaps have any other ideas
they wouldn't mind throwing out? Thanks!
