about two days ago i noticed some errors when writing to one of the hard drives in my linux computer. the drive has an xfs partition, it is an IBM 75GXP.
xfs_check: unexpected XFS SB magic number 0x58445340
xfs_check: cannot read root inode (990)
bad superblock magic number 58445340, giving up
xfs_repair gives up on the primary magic number and fails to find the secondary on the disk.
is there any way i can use xfsdump to back up this partition and then restore it to a good disk? mounting the drive fails.
my system is: Linux bobbydigital 2.6.5 #3 Fri Apr 30 00:52:49 MDT 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
running debian testing.
