I've always had trouble with this drive locking up at random, forcing me to dismount the drive, power cycle it, and remount it.. Well this morning when I went to do that, I was unable to remount it.. When I do an FSCK, I get this:
Code:
fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
e2fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
/dev/sda1: recovering journal
/dev/sda1: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while reading block 219270289

JBD: Failed to read block at offset 11261
fsck.ext3: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to re-open /dev/sda1
e2fsck: io manager magic bad!
Did the drive actually crash, or is there something more I need to do to get the file system working again.. It's an EXT3 file system..

Figured out how to specify an alternate superblock, and then how to recreate the main superblock.. My data is working again. I wish this drive would stop crashing.
