View Full Version : [other] Problems to access external USB HD

October 31st, 2011, 07:53 AM
My server (Fedora Core) crashed. My backup is on an external USB HD. Now when I tried to connect from my laptop (UBUNTU) to it I get hte following message:

Unable to mount 1TB Filesystem
Error mounting: Mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.

Any idea what is wrong here?

Thank you Wolfgang

Try to hook up the drive on another PC and see if it works. If it doesn't, the filesystem is probably damaged as well
