RE: debugfs question



Thanks Andreas,

I have a problem that for the file data I need the fs MetaData is corrupted.

I hope that because I am using same pre allocate logic all over my FS then I can get the Maping from other clear state FS file

And read the data directly from the corrupted FS.

Is that making sense?  

 

Thanks,

Yossi

What you are doing wrong is that you aren't using the debugfs "dump"

command, which will do what you are trying to do.
