When I booted my computer it reported an error on one of the partitions
of "Bad Magic Number in Superblock. The only recovery I new of was
to do a mkfs on the ext2 partition and recover from a backup tape.
Is there a way to try to recover from this type of error or not.
I am using Slackware 2.0 with a 1.1.59 kernal. The disk is a 1 gig
SCSI drive. Was there a better recovery method than reinstalling?
