Fixing corrupted partition
- I have a Seagate FreeAgent 500GB Desktop which I had Unslung'd with
6.8 beta. After a month or so I noticed that some files wouldn't open
and this got progressively worse.
So, I've now installed Debian instead and used a 2Gb flash drive as
the main Debian drive. I've now connected the FreeAgent but there were
still problems so I ran:-
which came back with loads of errors then restarted itself after about
an hour then "Killed" itself. I re-ran it over a few times and now it
says "Killed" almost immediately now and exits.
slug:~# fsck.ext3 -p /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
What else can I do to recover the drive?
Any help appreciated!

that the system had run out of swap space. Adding more solved it.

partition despite creating it! Oh well, it's added now.... it really
is a learning curve getting this thing installed and configured but
