partition resize, loss of data?
I had an ext2 partition that I wanted to resize (increase), after some searching on google I followed roughly this procedure.
fdisk to delete the old partition
fdisk to create a new partition with the new size.
resize2fs to resize the file system to the whole of the partition.
I was quite supprised that all appeared to be well when I mounted the file system again.
But... It's gone a bit wierd.
From Nautilus I can't access any directories further down than the second level e.g., Nautilus will display the contents of /mnt/hd and even the contents of /mnt/hd/somedir but it'll go no further than that. However I can see the contents of those directories and browse the files from the terminal.
It's a bit confusing but I'm glad I don't have to go and find the backup as the data is obviously still there.
Any ideas how I can fix it so that Nautilus can read the directories again?
