I just recently ran a bash script that froze up my Linux mint machine, and I had no choice but to hold power key to perform a hard power off.
Now my machine will not boot.
I have no clue if the bash script did something, the hard reset did something, or it is just coincidence and my harddrive died.
I created a bash script as follows
for file in 4k/* do convert $file -resize 50% 1080p/$file done
I ran in the folder ~/Pictures/EastTrip/Finals/
When I ran this script the UI started to become unresponsive. Then I performed the hard reset.
At the same time I ran the script that was working on directory "4k", I had the program rawtherapee writing to the directory 4k. I can't help but feel like the file system is broke and not the harddrive.
I have entered recovery mode and dropped down to root shell. When I navigate to the Pictures directory and use ls command I get the following errors....
What have I done?!?! I have like a weeks of unsaved work :/
