Here are pages 491 through 493 of the CentOS Bible on Recovery for Files-
I took screenshot because I wasn't able to cp and paste to paste bin-

Still no change. In fact, I might have made it worse. No mater, going to wipe the HDD and start over.

Thank you for your help.

This message is for those of you that google the same errors I encountered and come here for aid

This thread is being marked "SOLVED" more for labeling purposes then to say it was actually solved. Despite the great advice given, the system could not be recovered. While I can not say with confidence what actually happened, I have a general idea. At some point, an error was written to the BTRFS partition. Whether this was due to hardware malfunction (heat) or software error, I may never know. As far as file systems go, BTRFS is young and the tools to fix it not yet refined. In fact, when I was looking up those tools I found the phrase DO NOT USE plastered in a few places making me think they are still in development.

If you received the errors that I did first check your hardware then, if everything checks out, restore from backup. If you don't have a backup, shame on you (and me, in this case) for not keeping a backup!
