Re: damaged partition

You're working with a damaged partition.. Probably the first thing to do would be to make a copy of the partition.
Get either a 16GB thumb drive, or an external drive that you can partition appropriately.. then make a copy of the damaged partition --  This may be a trial-and-error situation.

Once you have a good copy, then you can work on the copy.

If you get a laptop drive, then you can make multiple copies of the bad partition(s) overnight and then try different recovery paths until you get what you need.

If you only care about parts of the data, on the drive you can also try mounting readonly -- and see if the data you want is available for copying out without having to repair the entire partition.

mount -o ro /dev/sda7 /mnt/sda7

So, to test a file system which is marked clean, you have to force it:

# e2fsck -f $dev

Hi Bodo,

here the Result of
<e2fsck -f /dev/sda7>

   e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
   Resize_inode not enabled, but the resize inode is non-zero. Clear<y>? cancelled!

Should i go further? This will be overide some Bits. I am frightened. Does this mean somebody tried to resize this partion without success? Maybe I?
