Repair a xfs filesystem
A XFS file system can become corrupted due to a power cut, a kernel bug or something else. To repair it, please use a recent version of xfs_repair
(Debian package: xfsprogs
) (I would recommend at least version 2.9.8).
- umount partition (
- xfs_repair it (
This might take a while and in the end should succeed, lost data is then put under
under the root of the file system.
