General :: How To Repair Filesystem - Appearing As Free Space - Recover The NTFS Data Partition ?

Feb 16, 2010

Original disk:
XP NTFS primary
Linux / ext4 logical
Linux /home ext4 logical
Win 7 NTFS logical
NTFS data logical
swap space
NTFS recovery partition

I tried to install linux, as there was a problem with XP overwriting grub, I chose write grub to /dev/sda8 (which is where the linux install was appearing earlier).

I guess this borked the filesystem somehow. Now the NTFS data partition and the swap space are appearing as one free space.
Well actually before that some linux live CDs (including gparted were seeing the entire drive as unpartitioned). I had to go into XP and delete the /ext4 partitions.

Is there any way for me to recover the NTFS data partition ?

Hardware :: Partition Shrink To Filesystem Size?

Apr 16, 2010

How can I shrink a partition to the filesystem size?I copied my ubuntu installation via dd from a smaller partition to a little bit bigger one to have all the same settings and programs and upgraded the distribution afterwards. Now the filesystem is smaller than the partition size. It would be nice to have both partitions have the same size so I could copy back the newer distribution someday ...GParted recognizes the new partition as 27 GB, the filesystem is just 25 GB.Is there a nice way to resize the partition to exact the size of the filesystem so that the filesystems remains untouched and no data might me lost?

Ubuntu :: Finding Filesystem Type/repair Broken Filesystem?

Jul 9, 2010

I have a following problem: Recently my drive with Ubuntu 9.4 has mysteriously stopped working, i.e. when I switch the computer on it informs me that GRUB didn't find the filesystem. Well, I suppose it happens.

First, I though it was due to the drive dying, but I popped it in an external enclosure and HDTune told me the drive was fine. Wanting to recover the files on the drive before reinstalling I first tried to mount it in said external enclosure under Windows (I have Win Ext2 driver installed which used to work just fine). This time, however, drive gets assigned a letter but upon opening it Windows popped up an error saying that the drive was not formatted and whether I would like to format it then.

Unfazed by this streak of failures I tried to mount it under Linux but, alas, to no avail. I might have tried every single -t operator under mount command but it still won't budge and let me mount.

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting/Installation Error (noob?) System Repair #?

Apr 15, 2010

Im probally just being a noob here but for the projects sake I thought it would be good to identify this problem. I have an old advent laptop and I tried to install Opensuse from DVD on it. I followed the installation as normal but when I tried to boot it said some sort of check was forced and then I have to enter the admin/root password upon doing this I got the message system repair # in red. I have tried to repair the system through the installation DVD and tried re-installing it but I still get the same message.

Fedora :: Home Partition And Create Logical Volume Out Of 53 Gb Filesystem Partition?

Aug 24, 2010

I installed fedora 13 64 bit and it works great but I encountered several issues when setting up guest OS with KVM. The problem seems to be related to selinux. But let me first ask question about logical volume. By Default fedora created logical volumes:

[Code].....

"If you expect that you or other users will store data on the system, create a separate partition for the /home directory within a volume group. With a separate /home partition, you may upgrade or reinstall Fedora without erasing user data files." seems to suggest I have to create a separate physical partition and assign that to /home. But reading elsewhere it seems to suggest logical volume acts like a partition. My goal is to make it easy in case fedora is hosed and I have to re-install it without affecting /home where my cirtical data resides. Given above do I need to create a separate physical partition or I am just fine?

I have a second hard disk that originally had windows and all my data. Windows is hosed but I can see my data from within Fedora and Windows is gone and I created created new partition in its place which used ot be the C:/ drive appears as 53 Gb filesystem. My data which was originally D drive appears as 215 GB filesystem. As given in [URL] I want to create a new logical volume in 53 Gb filesystem which I want to use as space for virtual disk to install guest OS's in KVM. Currrently 53 GB filesystem is mounted as /media/3467BH89JK789 but this does not work well with KVM. how do I create this logical volume out of 53 Gb filesystem partition and add proper selinux info and do I add to vg_vostrolx volume group and in a different volume group?

General :: Repair Filesystem After Deleting RAID

Apr 4, 2010

Playing with the Box, I deleted a Raid-0 partition intentionally, saved it, and reboot drops me to (Repair Filesystem#) prompt. I notice during boot-up that the box didn't find /dev/md0, which is expected.

So what's the recovery procedure, since I can't edit #/etc/fstab, permission denied.

#fdisk -l
shows all other partitions.

Not much familiar with fsck/e2fsck, yet like to give it a try.

Oct 23, 2010

Just delete a linux partition and now when i boot a message appears and says error: unknown filesystem grub rescue >

I have search on the net for this problem and i have understand it a little. But my situation is a bit different and because i don't want to format my hard disc i wanna try to fix it.

Now i tried to delete the partition of ubuntu 9.10 from disc utility. so i have the message i wrote above when i boot. I dont wanna delete my windows xp and ubuntu 10.4. what should i do to stop this message from appearing.

Debian Installation :: Booting From USB HDD - Error 17: Cannot Mount Selected Partition

May 10, 2010

I have a Dell VOSTRO laptop that I use for windows Vista. I have an old disk drive that I put into a USB case and now I want to use that for a Debian system. I do not want to install grub on my laptops HDD, if I do I need to have the USB HDD plugged in everytime I boot and i find that a real pain. I installed Debian on the USB drive with no problem and when it asked where I wanted to install GRUB I picked the USB drive ( I think ). Now when I interupt the boot and tell it to boot from the USB drive grub comes up with the correct menu but when I pick Debian I get the following messages:

Booting 'Debian GNU/Linux Kernel 2.6.26-2-amd64' root (hd1,0) Filesystem type unknown partition type 0xde kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-amd64 root=/dev/sdb1 ro quiet Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

OpenSUSE Install :: Not Booting And 11.2 Repair Doesn't Recognize Itself?

Jun 11, 2010

but I know a fair amount about the OS. I really like openSuSE, and I was trying to install 11.2 on my laptop, completely blank hdd. It installed just fine;I used the default options (the partition scheme was /boot, swap, root, /home) and started thesktop without a hitch. However, when I restarted, my BIOS would not even recognize an OS on the hard drive. I was also unable to boot using the installation DVD. I tried to use the repair feature, and I would either get a message saying that the boot loader was corrupt,d could not be repaired, or that the package database didn't match the version of openSUSE installed. I've tried re-installing multiple times, all with the same results. I have tried different partition schemes and I've tried different booting settings, such as enabling boot from root or /boot partition

Ubuntu :: Changed Folder Ownership - Filesystem Read Only

Jul 3, 2010

I accidentally changed etc., folder ownership, and now my computer doesn't even start up. I tried starting up in failsafe mode and changing the ownership from the root console, but somehow I wasn't allowed to do that. Then I loaded kubuntu from a live disk and I changed etc ownership to root. I thought that would clear up the mess, but apparently live disk's root is not equivalent to system's: when I try to start up the computer I get a message saying the filesystem is readonly. I'm not too concerned, because I have a complete backup, but I'd rather avoid the time of re-installing all my software again.

Hardware :: Partition Size Detected By Testdisk Bigger Than Disk Size

Mar 17, 2011

a client brought in an 160GB external HDD and wanted to get the files off it, there appeared to be no partitions on the disk but i thought it may have been formatted to use the whole disk. I tried to mount it as the various FS types the client thought it may have been to no avail.

I ran testdisk on it which told me that it previously had a mac partition table and a 210GB partition on it (which is larger than the disk) could anyone enlighten me as to whether or not this is even possible, and if so how could i retrieve the data?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Nfs Acting Weird For Different Size Partition

Jul 14, 2010

I am setting up a server and trying to access its partition over the nfs on a client machine. Our server has 4 1.5TB disks and the idea was to make a RAID 5 out of it.Now here is the problem:When I used only 1 disk that is nfs partition was of 1.5TB, I got fine speed(30MBps), but with multiple disks whether I am making 3TB (Raid 10) or 4.5TB (Raid 5), I get a really poor speed of 5-6MBps. I/O just waits.But for all above cases, disk I/O locally works fine.Does anyone knows any NFS limitation that is causing this problem?

Fedora :: Increasing Size Of System Partition?

Jul 29, 2011

I am running Fedora 15 along with Windows 7 on my Dell laptop. Yesterday, when I was trying to install TeX Live, it stopped in between saying that there is no space left in File System. Even though I have space in my hard drive volumes, space seems to be running out of my system partition which is only 9GB in size (I guess!).I am posting a few results that might help you guys. I have an unformatted 15GB partition. How can I add it to my system partition? And is my var folder too big (1.5GB)? If yes, how do I backup its contents and then delete them? Additionally, the File System shows a folder 'media' (89GB) which links the C: drive that contains Windows 7 and my personal files. Should it remain that way or should I separate it? If the latter, how? I just couldn't find any.

Code:
#df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

Is it possible to increase the size of a partition that is using LVM?I have 5GB of unpartitioned and unallocated space on my disk. I wish to add this to my VG. This free space is physically before the LVM partition.Can I increase the size of the physical partition using pvresize? Or is the only way to to create a new 5GB partition, add it to the VG and allocate it to the LVs? This is not ideal as I wish to minimise the number of partitions I have on the one disk.
