Hard disk trashed!
Posted on 1998-08-26
Hi, I run (or ran) Linux 2.1.117 on a PII 300, single CPU
on dual motherboard, and a 6.4GB Maxtor EIDE disk. I ran the disk before with my old P150 with no problems, but after upgrading it started throwing up read errors on bootup. Before today it was a 2 or 3, but after I got home from work this afternoon it went beserk, throwing hundreds of read, write and general filesystem errors, corrupted all my root partition and dumped a load of crap into lost&found.
I know there's no way to get back all the data (including my new enlightenment theme :( ), but does anyone know why it could have happened?
