I got my data off the disk (as far as possible), I called DELL for a new HD (which they ll send me next working day.. fun!) so now was the time to see if fsck could fix me anything so that I can get that data that I lost in the crash.. (including some stuff I left my PC to crunch on during the last night :/)
So, After 2 hours of fsck.. I couldnt mount the disks.. So I figured I d run it again & see what it says..
root@ubuntu:/media# fsck /dev/sda3
fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
e2fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda3
Could this be a zero-length partition?
Lol. Guess thats finished.. Although I’m still gonna try some things 😉
