dumpe2fs: A block group is missing an inode table while reading journal inode</i>

<i>Unable to read the contents of this file system!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
The cause might be a missing software package.
The following list of software packages is required for ext4 file system support:  e2fsprogs v1.41+.</i>

e2fsprogs is installed and its version is 1.42. It's on Debian 8.3.

First, if you do not have mdadm (man page) installed, you need to install it now:

sudo apt-get install mdadm

Supposing the drive's name is /dev/sdx, and we are interested in second partition, and supposing we already have some array on the system, so we name it for instance /dev/md9, we assemble the one-drive array as follows:

sudo mdadm --assemble --force /dev/md9 /dev/sdx2

If that went well, create some directory for the mount point, e.g:

sudo mkdir --mode=755 /mnt/zyxelnas

Finally, mount it as follows:

sudo mount /dev/md9 /mnt/zyxelnas
