Re: Ext3 problem

Problem solved. It seemed one of my sata cables was loose, I reconnected it and and I got all my data back :-) I'm happy now.

The tip about the raid made me relook into the raid array again

Thanks for the help

Yup, there is a Raid1 underlying. I'm using a XFX REVO 64 SPU 3 Port SATA Raid Card for my raid1 setup. Don't I lose my entire data when I break the raid?

Yup, even with the fsck -f option, the drive is clean.

The windows was connecting via samba (hence windows).

is underlying block device a single hard disk, or maybe a RAID1 or similar ?

I had a similar problem once, which turned out to be RAID1 which was out of
sync (but wrongly thining it is OK!), so sometimes it read "right" data from
one disk, and some times "bad" data from other disk. Solution was to break
the RAID, force fsck it, and recreate the raid afterwards.

you did specify -f to force it, I assume ?
