Heeelp! - I can't access Disk1

    Hi there,
    My NSLU2 stopped giving me access to disk1. I can see the contents but can not modify them, or save anything new to the disk.
    The disk is formatted in EXT3. The users have RW rights on the shares.
    Linksys support told me that I have to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch. This sounds rather drastic. Any other ideas?

    Do a Scandisk on the drive with the NSLU2. That should restore write access to the drive.

    The NSLU2 is programmed to force the user to periodically scandisk drives after a period of time or number of write accesses (I'm not sure which) in order to protect the drive's data from too much potential data corruption.

    I can't believe that Linksys support didn't suggest this. It's like they are completely clueless about their own products!

    I did the scandisk as you suggested but it did not work.
    I checked the log and it says: "11/28 11:31:01 Disk 1: Scandisk failed".
    Any other ideas?

    Also, I lost one of the shares on the drive. It is no longer accessible at all.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Maybe your drive is failing or badly corrupted? If there is important data on it you might try using this to retrieve the data to a Windows machine: http://www.fs-driver.org/index.html .

    Then you would have to reformat and reload the files.

    I tried the fs-driver and was able to see the same shares as in the NSLU2.
    The folder "music" is not accessible and it says that it may be corrupt.
    Is there a way to get the files from this folder?
