My Ubuntu 10.10 just crashed, probably due to hardware error (and in the end I was getting errors like
Unknown filesystem .....
grub> .., and it went to the GRUB console before I could take any other action).
I reinstalled the same version from a USB stick. I had Ubuntu installed with the
ext4 file system and I also have the same filesystem in the same hard disk on a different drive.
When I try to access my previous filesystem, I get errors:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda6, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I had some important files in the previous volume ; I don't know how to retrieve them.
And what are the chances that I would get the same outcome (hardware error)? Please help me!
