File System Problem
Posted on 1998-09-01
I am running SCo Open server release 5.
One of my filesystems has become beyond full and will no longer mount.
when fsck is run, I get the following error on phase 1
DANGER: Filesystem being checked is larger than the device in which it is stored(/dev/usr40). The filesystem is 59472K while the device is 58476K. Backup filesystem and recreate as soon as possible.
My questions are:
1) How do I back it up if I cannot mount it?
2) How has this error occured?
Please could somebody answer this as soon as possible as it is imperitive to my current project deadlines.
Is there just an easy fix?
Thanks in advance
