Hi,

You have 3 ways to resolve it :

1. Reboot your system and wait for FSCK run.
2. Use following steps to :

umount /dev/hddXXX
fsck -CV /dev/hddXXX

or

fsck -CRV /dev/hddXXX

since the fs is mounted read/write

3. Best solution use some commercial Linux Partition Recovery software.

I like : http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

Version : systemrescuecd-x86-1.5.4.iso

Either boot your system in rescue mode or boot your system with Live CD like knoppix or Slax and scan your filesystem.

Download slax:

Download Knoppix:
