I have been trying to mount an ext2 hard drive in ubuntu server, but when i run
sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/mynewdrive -t ext2 I get
wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I also ran fsck /dev/sdb and got
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 e2fsck 1.42.5 (29-Jul-2012) ext2fs_open2: Bad magic number in super-block fsck.ext2: Superblock invalid, trying backup blocks... fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
Not sure where to go from here! Anyone have any ideas?
