zero-length partition fc16


hi guys;

after interrumping (ctrl c) a fsck :-( i am getting this error:

Code:
Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sdc1
Could this be a zero-length partition?
i've tryied to recover my superblock from different backup places:

Code:
540  e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/sdc1
  e2fsck -b 98304 /dev/sdc1
  e2fsck -b 163840 /dev/sdc1
  e2fsck -b 229376 /dev/sdc1
  e2fsck -b 294912 /dev/sdc1
but always i got the same error:

Code:
e2fsck 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
e2fsck: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sdc1
Could this be a zero-length partition?

may somebody help me ?

regards in advance!

hector

Have you tried looking at the partition table to make sure that something didn't happen like, the disk got "scribbled" on somehow, and the table got zapped?
