So, you've ran fsck but did not try to repair yet, right? If so and you do
happen to have a spare 750 GB *now*, try to dd(1) your data to this spare
disk: then you can fsck your filesystems as many times as you want to.

Are there any (USB-)device related errors in the syslogs? We don't wanna
run fsck when the underlying device is unstable. dd(1) would be a good way
to find out.

Also, is LVM or RAID or sth. like this involved? Searching the net for
these errors brought up quite a few hits related to LVM b0rkage...

However, let's hope some ext3 hacker will comment on the logs...

make bzImage, not war
