[opensuse] strange ext4 problem
Hello,

I have a strange ext4 problem. The disk was an old backup I didn't use and just wanted to reuse, but just in case I would like to know how to fix it and see if the disk is not damaged.

any hint?
thanks
jdd

dmesg says:

EXT4-fs (sdn1): bad geometry: block count 488378390 exceeds size of device (488378389 blocks)

notice there is only one block error

then:

LANG=us ; mount /dev/sdn1 /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdn1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so.

fsck.ext4 /dev/sdn1
e2fsck 1.42.11 (09-Jul-2014)
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 488378390 blocks
The physical size of the device is 488378389 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
