Running 5.1-REL on a system w/ 2 drives. Was saving a file to 2nd drive (mounts as /data) and system suddenly froze then rebooted. Never good. Fsck barfed on startup telling me I had to run it manually. The error I'm stuck with is:
/dev/ad6s1c Cannot find file system superblock /dev/ad6s1c: NOT LABELED AS A BSD FILE SYSTEM Searching on this error hasn't been very productive. Some people talk about a "LOOK FOR ALTERNATE SUPERBLOCKS?" question that I'm not getting when I run fsck. There's also mention of an undocumented -b option to fsck for fixing this. Then there's some scary manual method using dd: dd if=/dev/ad6s1c skip=32 of=/dev/ad6s1c seek=16 bs=512 count=16 But before I do that I definitely want confirmation. Please tell me there's hope for this drive...this Windows PC makes me feel dirty. Thanks in advance. :) ===== Scott I.
