Hard disk restore

| -Uncategorized

Having journal problems with my ext3 /home partition. I, err, dropped
my laptop, and lots of errors started showing up in my /home. _Only_
my /home partition, strangely. Just like last time.

Sync’d over my private stuff and grabbed the rest from the Net. I can
tolerate missing messages in my ~/Mail, but not corrupted files in my
arch repositories or my Emacs directory. Fortunately, I have
known-good copies on several sites.

I’m getting good at this /home restore thing.

I’ll try reformatting the partition later and seeing if that’ll do
anything. If not, well, this new partition is actually bigger than my
old /home, so…

I should lose a number of corrupted mail messages at the most, as
everything else is either safe or unnecessary.
