Are you unable to mount your Linux hard drive volume? Are you facing superblock, inode, or file system corruption like error messages while booting your Linux system? Such situations are caused by corruption of Linux hard drive metadata structures. This behavior of Linux operating system renders all your significant data inaccessible and leads to significant data loss. In order to get your mission-critical data recovered, you should opt for Linux Data Recovery solutions through reliable tools.
In a practical scenario, you may encounter the below error messages after copying your data through ddrescue command-line tool and running e2fsck utility:
“Superblock has a bad ext3 journal (inode 8).
“/dev/sdf was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Missing '..' in directory inode 1785876.
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Root inode is not a directory; aborting.
fsck.ext2 /dev/sdf failed (status 0x8). Run manually.”
After the above error message, you can not access your precious data from the hard drive. In order to get your lost data back, and to sort out these errors, you should perform Data Recovery Linux.
The problem is caused by bad block at the starting of inode table. You can fix the problem by reconstructing root inode. It is quite easy to reconstruct the root inode, however the problem is that root inode needs to be placed at fixed location and currently a bad block is located there.
Forcing the hard drive to use spare block from its pool is possible, however a bad block is often an indicator of the beginning of hard drive crash. Thus, replacing the affected hard drive with new one is the safest way to recover from this situation. Use 'dd' command to copy data from old hard drive to new one. Then run e2fsck to create a new root directory on the new hard drive, and shift all the inodes, respectively.
If the above method does not solve your problem, Linux Recovery
applications perform absolute recovery. They use high-end scanning techniques to methodically scan the entire hard drive and get all your precious data recovered. The Linux Data Recovery
software come equipped with simple and rich graphical user interface to enable easy recovery.
Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery is the most effective solution for all logical data loss scenarios. The software recovers Ext4, Ext3, Ext2, FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32 file system volumes. It is compatible with all major distributions of Linux operating system such as Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, SUSE, and Ubuntu.
