Mounting Drive Bad Superblock Error
Hi guys, hopefully someone can help me here. I have a x64 OpenSUSE server with two hard drivers installed. The first one is used for the / and /home partitions and the other is for backups. Ironically enough it is the backup hard drive I am having trouble with.
I was having trouble writting to the drive and unmounted it to preform a fchsk, however now when ever I try to mount it I get the following error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Does anyone know who I can repair the drive and retrive data? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well is there anything at the end of `dmesg | tail` ?

Can you open sda1 in fdisk/cfdisk (don't modify the partitions, just look)?

Is the partition ext3? ReiserFS?
