Once in a while (every 30-th boot) my linux system decides to check filesystem for errors. I am ok with this – what needs to be done needs to be done.
I’m working with a fanless PC (hundreds of them, in fact) that has debian 6 and 3 partitions( FAT and 2x ext2). The system doesn’t have a power button as such so most people tend to yank the plug to ‘shut it down’ rather than init 0 (or equivalent). As a result the filesystem(s) build up errors pretty rapidly.
On my personal home computer running Kubuntu Linux 13.04 I’m having trouble mounting a partition that is very dear to me. My backup policy is to perform a backup about monthly, so I do have a backup from August :). Is there any way to recover the personal files that are on this drive?
