Are you facing file system structure inconsistency errors? Are you unable to boot your Linux computer? This is due to problems with Linux file system. In such cases, operating system can not get required information to boot and thus you face odd behavior. This behavior renders your entire system inaccessible and unusable. In such circumstances, you may experience horrifying situations of data loss. Data loss is a very critical situation that creates need of Data Recovery Linux.

When you try to start your Linux computer, you may come across any of the below symptoms:

•    You encounter “Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure” error message while booting your computer. The system loops round and attempts to boot the system again, with the same error message.

•    When you select previous version of kernel at boot menu, the system starts booting, but runs “Checking filesystems” and does not give any error. However, when it goes to /boot directory, you get “Error reading block 49404 (Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read) while doing inode scan.” error message.

•    You can get into the recovery mode, but can not run system maintenance tool.

•    When you run fsck utility from maintenance prompt, you encounter “short read” error.

If any of the above behaviors occur, you can not boot your system and it becomes inaccessible. In order to get your precious data recovered, Linux Recovery is required.


The above problem is caused by the Linux file system code for denoting internal error, which is returned by sanity checks of file system structure on hard drive not coping up with what is anticipates. It is generally resulted by a damaged file system or due to bugs in code handling in GRUB boot loader.


File system corruption and boot errors call for hard drive formatting and operating system reinstallation. This replaces all the damaged system files and file system. However, it also removes all the data from hard drive and causes severe data loss.

In such events, Linux Data Recovery software come to your rescue. The applications are specifically designed to extensively scan the affected Linux hard drive and retrieve lost data. You need not have sound technical knowledge to perform Linux Recovery using these tools as they have interactive user interface.

Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery software successfully recover lost, deleted, or inaccessible data from Linux hard drive. It supports recovery from Ext4, Ext3, Ext2, FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32 file system volumes. The software works well with all major versions of Linux operating system, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, SUSE, Debian, and Mandriva.
