Today a lot of files in my Home folder suddenly disappeared after a reboot. Also, it seems like all my configurations made to the system were resetted (e.g. my color scheme and config files for fish shell are gone). On the other hand all my installed programs are still there. I am sure that I did not just delete everything by an accidental
sudo rm * or something like that.
I'm using a Dual boot system with Kubuntu 17.04 installed on a SSD and Windows 10 installed on a HDD with the HDD split up in a few partitions. When accessing those partitions everything is still there. It seems that only the SSD is affected.
Has someone experienced something like this? Can someone recommend a way to diagnose and (hopefully) fix the problem? I'm gonna try some hard drive checking and later post the results here.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: There were two partitions on the SSD, one small boot partition and one ext4 partition on which ubuntu was installed.
e2fsck -f -p -v /dev/nvme0np2 on the ubuntu partition this is the result:
