I remember that in MsDos times we had utilities that did backups of the

e2image will create image of superblock, block group descriptor, block and
inode
allocation bitmaps, and the inode table that can be stored elsewhere.

But e2fsck can not use it - so says the man page.


File system itself will store superblock every 8k blocks, so it is not that
easy to break
it as DOS with 2 FAT tables.

Yes, but what is lost are the directory names of all directories, or all
rootlevel
directories. That's what I have seen destroyed completely on several
filesystems.
