Just rebooted my machine and got:

EXT3-fs: error loading journal

and it drops into busybox...

Help?

:confused:

I should probably add that I dual boot with XP, and that boots fine, and all drives are reading ok, even the one sharing a partition with ubuntu..

I'm thinking I should start backing up right now eh?

bump..

From what I've researched, I'm not likely to get my data back.
Can anyone please confirm whether I'll need a new drive, or whether I'll be able to wipe the partition and start again.

Cheers
