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.

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

Download slax:
