Wait... Grub? I thought I was supposed to Fsck things?

Grumble... read... no windows left.. Testdisk? hmmm... hey got Synaptic thing to work...

sudo testdisk... hmm... hey! 39 gigabytes! it has been upgraded.

no - testdisk did not find error. Partitions are fine. L swap and E swap? anyway.

Back to trying to figure out how to Fsck.
