I knew something looked fishy when I looked at this drive and only saw half the volume size I thought was there….
/dev/sdd 240365240 206665208 21490104 91% /media/usb3 dbs@yawl:~$ sudo umount /media/usb3 dbs@yawl:~$ sudo fsck /dev/sdd fsck 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008) e2fsck 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008) The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 61049646 blocks The physical size of the device is 33554431 blocks Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt! Abort?
This is the 500gig external USB drive I’ve been carting around. In reality, there’s nothing particularly critical on it, some, er, backed up music files which I’m loathe to part with, but at least it’s not irreplaceable data.
