Encrypted Reiserfs Fails to Mount -- Reiserfsck Fails as Well
Posted on 2004-07-30
This is rather sordid...
I formatted a reiserfs /Crypt directory (40GB of files that I would like to retrieve) with encryption (I'm using SuSE 8.2).
Booting the system gives the friendly output of:
fsck failed. Please repair maually and reboot. The root file system is currently mounted read-only. To remount it read-write do:
bash#mount -n -o remount,rw /
I've tried running fsck and reiserfsck, which says "reiserfs_open: neither new nor old reiserfs format found on /dev/hda4
reiserfsck: Cannot open filesystem on "/dev/hda4"
Just to be sure, I also checked it with e2fsck and jfs_fsck to no avail.
So, I need to be able to mount this system. What can I do?
