Hi there
I have Redhat EL 3.
My main volume has become corrupt, I ran fsck , fsck -p and fsck -a several times and it says it's fixing the problems, but every time I reboot the server it wants me to run fsck again.
I have a usb drive that I can access that has everything under \ stored in it (I take daily backups with rsync)
How can I authoritatively restore everything on my USB drive onto my main volume?
The command I used with rsync is this:

rsync -av --one-file-system / /dev/sdb1

so everything is under /dev/sdb1 right now.

When I boot red hat now, I can get to the CLI where I can log in as root and mount the usb drive etc. what should be my next step? alternatively, what else can I try to fix my main volume?

There seem to be too many problems with your HD. First test the disk with the manufacturer's diagnostic utility, and let it repair any problems if it finds them. If it can't repair the errors it finds, get a new HD. You'll find the diagnostic tools of most manufacturers on the UBCD.
