I have a nasty problem. I'm writing this on my Win 2000 harddrive because my Fedora Core I drive won't let me in. My error message is;
/: clean, ##/#### files, ###/#### blocks
/boot: clean, ##/###### files, #####/###### blocks
/data1: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while reading block 516
/data1: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while reading
fsk.ext3: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while checking ext3 journal for /data1
/data2: clean, blah, blah,blah
/data3: clean, blah, blah,blah
etc., etc., etc,. through all of disk and then
An error occured during the filesystem check.
Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot when you leave the shell.

[ or type Control-D to continue ]
If I ^-D I just repeat this scenario, but if I give my psswd, I get;
[ to which I type ] fsck -y /dev/hda1/data1
and after a few moments of harddrive action I'm rewarded with;
And on and on. I've gone up to Filesystem 65, and began to wonder what good I'm actually doing. /data1 at block 516 is my obvious problem Can someone tell me how to resolve this mess? If nothing else, should I upgrade with a CD version of Fedora Core II or another distro so I can save my data on the harddrive and then buy a new drive? This same thing happened to my wife's drive about one year ago and after getting her drive to work about 5 times, I gave up and tried Win 2000 on her drive and it has worked perfectly for her ever since. Could it be Fedora rather than the drive?
Now what I need to repair is ONLY /data1 as all others, "/", /boot, /data2, /data3, /data4, /var, etc., are clean except for block 516 in /data1. How do I repair just that filesystem? There are zillions of files on this 80G drive!
Then the information in your original post is wrong, and /data1 is NOT /dev/hda1. Only you can tell which partition is labelled /data1. e2label /dev/hdaX (replace X appropriately) is one way to query a partition's label.
Can I do that query from the point of [Repair filesystem] 1# ? That is my only starting position unless I can do it from the splash screen where I choose the Linux kernel or Win 2000 HDD to boot into. @ that screen I'm allowed to make kernel arguments, etc.
