    Angry Corrupted EXT3 file system.

    Hi, guys!
    I am using Ubuntu since release 8.10, but it is first time when i can`t solve problem

    Problems had begun when i tried to create new NTFS partition on unallocated disk space with Paragon Partition Manager (damn, that was stupid). Process was aborted with error (later i finally made it with Gparted without problems)

    After reboot mine Ubuntu say:
    Code:
    Errors were found while checking the disk drive for /
    Press F to attempt to fix errors, I to ignore, S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery.
    I pressed "F" but that had help only for a boot and doesn`t really fix error :`(

    Later i booted from liveCD and had checked partition (/dev/sdb1; file system - ext3) with gparted (result - aborted fixing process with error)
    Now i can`t even boot from that partition and even mount it from other linux system.

    mine fdisk -l
    Code:
    /dev/sdb1   *           1        5957    47849568   83  Linux  -  problematic partition (unmountable)
    /dev/sdb2            5958       29983   192988845    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sdb3           29984      113905   674103460+   7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sdb4          113906      121602    61826152+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
    /dev/sdb5          113906      121602    61819904   83  Linux  -  fresh ubuntu
    When i run "fsck.ext3 /dev/sdb1", result:
    Code:
    fsck.ext3: Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
    /dev/sdb1: clean, 438985/2992416 files, 7558358/11962392 blocks
    but it will have no effect...

    When i try to mount it - "mount: Stale NFS file handle"

    PhotoRec recover most of my files, but i need complete partition.

    P.S.: HDD is new - no bad blocks. Help me please, you are my last hope. Sorry for bad English.

    Re: Corrupted EXT3 file system.

    Could it be the "max 4 primary partitions" limit?
    I have not tried it for some time, and it is possible that there no longer is such a limit, but I remember I had problems in Ubuntu/Debian with more than 4 primary partitions.

    Just a thought..

    Some partition managers do not handle Linux partitions well.

    Re: Corrupted EXT3 file system.

    We seem to be seeing a lot of testdisk writing the extended partition beyond the end of the drive. You need to fix that. It may prevent other repairs from running as not being able to correctly read a partition table stops many processes.

    I would first backup partition table and save to an external device.

    Backup partition table to text file
    sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sdb > PT.txt

    Some have fixed it just by reading the PT.txt file back in. Or editing PT.txt file.

    sfdisk to fix extended beyond end -partition outside the disk!
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1012825

    A few have had this work. Not sure what internal process checks sizes.
    this occasionally fixes issues and is worth trying:
    you do the following :
    fdisk /dev/sdb
    use option : x (expert mode)
    use option : f (fix partition order)
    use option : r (return)
    use option : p (to print)
    use option : v to verify partition
    if it is ok
    then you can do
    option : w ( to write table to disk)
    option : q to quit


    I have not seen:

    Re: Corrupted EXT3 file system.

    Im no expert, but this appears to be a BIOS problem? Can your bios handle such large drives? Is it configured for LBA? Also possible, the hdd is jumpered to limit the capacity to, what is it, 32 or 48GB?

    If you don't need the stuff can't you just format it?

    Re: Corrupted EXT3 file system.

    oldfred, i fixed overlaping partition error according to the second instruction and i did that:

    Code:
    fdisk /dev/sdb
    use option : x (expert mode)
    use option : f (fix partition order)
    use option : r (return)
    use option : p (to print)
    use option : v to verify partition
    if it is ok
    then you can do
    option : w ( to write table to disk)
    option : q to quit
    now i have: (fdisk /dev/sdb; option; p)

    Code:
    /dev/sdb1   *           1        5957    47849568   83  Linux
    /dev/sdb2            5958       29983   192988845    7  HPFS/NTFS

    No guarantees but you could try to force unmounting to release the stale file handle:
    Code:
    umount -f /dev/sdb1*
    followed by a reboot.
