Man was that ever a boneheaded move. I accidentally ran e2fsck -Ddfvy /dev/hdb instead of e2fsck -Ddfvy /dev/hdb1. Is there anyway to recover from this? The disk I ran it on contained my entire mp3 collection and was not backed up.
is that destructive then?
It appears to be. Running it on the whole disk seems to have destroyed all the superblocks. I can't find a way to recover the filesystem that was on partition hdb1.
It seems highly unlikely that e2fsprogs would have destroyed all of the superblock. More likely is that the partition table is damaged. Have you checked to make sure it is OK?
Yes, the partition is still there and the table looks ok. I've found, strangely enough, that I can mount the whole disk and it's full of numbered files in lost+found. Yes, there is a lost+found on hdb where there shouldn't be. It's like the command I ran rebuilt the filesystem onto hdb.I don't think I'm going to get anything off this disk.
