What does that error message mean? I'm running SuSE 8.0
2.4.18-4GB. The message occurs when I'm using rsync to backup
files from an ext3 partition to a reiser partition on another
I should say "to a former reiser partition" since reiserfsck says:
reiserfsck 3.x.1b (2002)
Will read-only check consistency of the filesystem on /hard-disk-copy
Will put log info to 'stdout'
Do you want to run this program?[N/Yes] (note need to type Yes):Yes
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 2
reiserfs_open: bread failed reading block 16
reiserfs_open: neither new nor old reiserfs format found on /hard-disk-copy
reiserfsck: could not open filesystem on "/hard-disk-copy"
I've never had an ext3 partition completely vanish. Is reiser
