Our home-directories are located on a separate HDD (30GB, 1 large primary ext3 partition) and until yesterday it worked correctly.

...30 GB and no backups?
plz don't ask, why! ;)


Because the partition was nearly full we had to enlarge our home-space by moving it to a larger HDD. We decided to try a copy of whole partition by using gparted from the "SystemRescueCd" (http://www.sysresccd.org).

Why would you do this? What's wrong with tar/cp?
It was just a try and the crashed partition wasn't event mountet. The
partition must have had an unrecognized error!

 - e2undel, recover (both available as debian packages in unstable)
- R-Linux, a free (as in beer) recovery tool for win32 (works pretty good though)
 - ...and then there's always grep(1) & friends :(
Some items listed there with the type "file" are directories and others
listed as "directory" are files.

I already tried to find some files by using grep, find, cat (...) but no
chance!

I will try some of the utilities mentioned above but I don't think,
there is any possibility to get some data back ...

Thanx for your hints!!

Bye
