The Linux system is one of the most used operating systems in the world. It is an open source operating system that is much more secure than other operating systems. It is also very economical as it can be set up even with obsolete hardware components such as i386 or i486 processor. The Linux system also provides you the freedom to administer your system by taking care of the look & feel and also the applications that need to be installed, etc.
However, at times the Linux system gets corrupted because of various reasons such as corrupt file system, power surges, human errors, virus infections, etc. In such cases, you should take appropriate measures to overcome this issue. However, if you are unable to do so then you should use a third-party Linux data recovery software to perform Linux recovery.
Consider a scenario wherein you have a Linux 4 system, which you have restarted. But the system fails to boot and an error message is displayed, that is:
“ext2fs partition type 0×83. …. ext3-fs: journal inode is deleted…. mount: error 22 mounting ext3 error 2 mounting name switchroot: mountfailed:22 umount/initrd/dev failed:2 kernal panic - not syncing”
The most possible cause of this error message is that the hard disk has crashed. Some bad blocks must have occurred in the inode table making the file system unrecoverable.
To resolve this issue, you should try the following methods:
• Boot the system from the disaster recovery boot media or installation media and run e2fsk on the damaged file system.
• If the data is stored on some other file system, then try to mount it and transfer the data to some other media such as pen drive or tape.
Either of the aforementioned methods may be able to either rectify the file system or transfer the data to some other safe location. However, if you are unable to do so then you should use a third-party Linux data recovery software to recover Linux file system. Such read-only tools are able to recover lost data and file systems using fast yet sophisticated scanning algorithms.
Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery software is a Linux data recovery tool that performs data recovery of Linux file systems such as ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32. It is capable of recovering data from various hard drives such as SCSI, SATA, EIDE, and IDE. This Linux recovery tool supports various Linux distributions such as Red Hat, SUSE, Debian, Caldera, Mandrake, Sorcerer, TurboLinux, Slackware, Gentoo etc. It is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, Server 2003, XP, and 2000.
