    Trouble Booting & Reading Data from SSD

    Hey all,

    I'm running into some problems with Kubuntu all of a sudden. Yesterday the computer was running poorly, and after a restart it came up with:

    Code:
    error: hd0 out of disk
    press any key to continue...
    ... and then dropped me into the BusyBox built-in shell, which I've never been in before.

    I heard that the "out of disk" error can be a problem with grub, so I booted from an image and was going to see if that was the problem. However, my attempt to mount the drive yields this:

    Code:
    kubuntu@kubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    mount:	wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
    	missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    	In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    	dmesg | tail  or so
    dmesg then yields:

    Code:
    kubuntu@kubuntu:~$ dmesg | tail
    [  659.228555] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Sense Key : Medium Error [current] [descriptor]
    [  659.228555] Descriptor sense data with sense descriptors (in hex):
    [  659.228555] 		72 03 11 04 00 00 00 0c 00 0a 80 00 00 00 00 00
    [  659.228555] 		02 c1 56 18
    [  659.228555] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda]  Add. Sense: Unrecovered read error - auto reallocate failed
    [  659.228555] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] CDB: Write(10): 2a 00 02 c1 56 18 00 00 10 00
    [  659.228555] end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 46224920
    [  659.228555] JBD2: recovery failed
    [  659.228555] ata1: EH complete
    [  659.228555] EXT4-fs (sda1): error loading journal
    I'm at a loss. I suspect an issue with the drive; it shows up in the BIOS at full size, but it won't mount from its slot or if connected via USB (RunCore SSDs have a Micro socket built in). Anyone have any ideas?

    In case you need the info, it's a Dell Mini 9 with a 32GB RunCore SSD and 2GB of memory.

    Assuming that you have your entire operating system on that drive with only one partition, you have installed too many programs.

    If you continue to do so you will end up with a black screen and command line access only.

    To check your disk usage, open a terminal and type
    Code:
    df -h
    That will show you (as a percentage) how much is where. Would you please post the result with your reply.

    Hi kyphi,

    Booting from USB, I can't even mount the drive to get df to show me how full it is, and I know I haven't come close to filling it yet. From the BusyBox shell, this is all it gives me (it won't allow the -h parameter):

    Code:
    Filesystem	1024-blocks	Used Available Use% Mounted on
    udev		  1014884	 184   1014700   0% /dev

    No matter about the "h" parameter (h stands for human readable).

    The error message says that the disk is running out of space yet the latest figure you provided shows that the disk is hardly used. However, since the file system seems to be corrupted and cannot be read I regretfully have to agree with your own diagnosis that the SSD is no longer usable.

    Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. Thankfully, the only critical thing on the SSD is some Dungeons & Dragons notes, although if I can find some utility that lets me recover them I'll be happy.

    Thanks for your help!
