A lightning stroke damaged my disk. I dd'ed the image to another disk an ran fsck on the image. I got:
Code:
$ fsck.ext3 -v -y  ./copy.iso 
e2fsck 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
Error reading block 13858 (Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read).  Ignore error? yes

Force rewrite? yes

Superblock has an invalid journal (inode 8).
Clear? yes

*** ext3 journal has been deleted - filesystem is now ext2 only ***

The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 15912374 blocks
The physical size of the device is 12900 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
Abort? yes
Is there anything that is likely to work that I can do to rescue data from the disk?

I have had EXACTLY the same issue as others in this thread, AND my compliments to Mr. Hailey's_Comet . . . the only thing I would add to the line is sudo. But the resize2fs command IS the one that SOLVED my problem. Compliments again to HC.

I found this solution by searching on the clause "Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt" . . . the message from a forced fsck. I had tried TestDisk and a few other remedies that DIDN'T work.

For those of us that mess around with GParted trying to shrink partitions and screw up, this is a likely solution (or at least it was for me and a few others here.) Thanks very much HC.
