    XFS File System ... Everying Gone !

    Hey guys, have a question here, just wondering if anyone can give me some insight on this problem. Im running a SGI Fuel Box runnin IRIX 6.5 with a 2 TB Raid Infortrend.

    Anyways i got a file I/O error on one of the disks, the raid said it was a bad block read on disk 7. So i removed the disk, and it seemed to start reconstructing the data on disk 1 (backup disk). However the system crashed durring the reconstruction. So i brang the system back up, and raid was still mounted.

    Now the real problem ... The raid disk has only 1% used !!! when it should have about 1.4 TB used. Apperently someone really wrong has happened. But im sure the data is still there. Is there anyway to get that data back, or rebuild that filesystem so it can see the lost data ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    you should try the xfs homepage...I think there's a page on sourceforge. I'm sure people have run into this problem...you should also look and see if fsck supports fixing xfs...worst comes to worst and you absolutely need that data, there are companies that provide corporate solutions for this kind of thing.
