    Hi,

    I'm trying to recover my filesystem, but without success in the moment.
    I get the following message:

    [e2fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007) ; runtime: circa 3 days]
    [CODE]
    Error storing directory block information (inode=334396964, block=0, num=6436): Memory allocation failed
    e2fsck: aborted
    [\CODE]

    [e2fsck 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009) ; runtime: circa 3 days]
    [CODE]
    Error storing directory block information (inode=301450645, block=0, num=942): Memory allocation failed
    e2fsck: aborted
    [\CODE]

    If anyone has any ideas where I proceed from here I would be most grateful.
