How can I fix a message like this (read after a dmesg command)?

EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_free_inode: bit already cleared for inode 119198
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_free_inode: bit already cleared for inode 119217
EXT4-fs warning (device hdb1): ext4_unlink: Deleting nonexistent file (119196), 0
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_free_inode: bit already cleared for inode 119201
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197
EXT4-fs error (device hdb1): ext4_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 119197

It seems impossible to retrieve (or delete) a bunch of files. Any suggestions?

  • Clone whatever data you have left with Clonezilla to another disk

  • backup your data ( assuming that you still can) and run a fsck on the disk.

The EXT4 filesystem's data structures are corrupted. You need to unmount the filesystem and run fsck on it. Assuming the disk itself is sound, fsck should be able to correct these problems. Run fsck -y /dev/hdb1, then restore anything you're concerned about from backups.

  • the fsck utility start booting time ( when my system re start). The problem is recovery the data corrupted without use ( or before use ) some like fsck or e2fsck
