Ext3 filesystem failed
Posted on 2002-07-17
We have 3 Seagate drive (ST360021A) installed on a RH7.2 system with dual Celeron 533MHZ CPU. The motherboard has 2 HPT366 UltraDMA/66 controllers.
The filesystem(ext3) keep fails.
The first time, we used 2 drives for RAID and failed. Then we put another one in and copy all data (some are missing or failed) to that drive.
After a while (half month), the filesystem failed again and lost some data.
Now, this is the third time, with one single drive and the filesystem (ext3)failed again. We have important data lost, when we change (cd) to that directory and it says "Input/output error", please help!
Tell me what's the solution to get back the data and what's the possible problem. Thanks
BTW, we have 2 IBM 47GB drives and have no problem til now.
