Lost directory at external HDD

Hello,

I’m missing a directory on a external hard drive. I’m sure it was there In my console history there is an history entry to that exact directory. If I check the drive size it tells me there is 470GB in use. All files added together on the drive ads up to 410GB so there is 60GB missing what is about the size of the files in the directory.

When is cd to the dir in the console it tells me it doesn’t exist (issn’t in the ls as well). But when I go to the directory in Dolphin is tells me the same thing but it will try to read the directory (bar on the bottom).

No for what I have done to get is sorted.
Unmounted en mounted the drive again. Didn’t work.
Checked the drive with fsck -vf /dev/sdd1. Drive was clean and no error’s
Smart doesn’t show any error’s on that drive.
Smart’s full output

What can I do to get my directory back? I didn’t remove it I’m 100% sure and the size is still in use.
The drive is connected with a eSATA cable.

Thanks for you help.

what about the output of


ls -hal

But when I go to the directory in Dolphin is
tells me the same thing but it will try to read the directory (bar on
the bottom).

is your system language english, or some other?
does the directory name have spaces, or characters not included in basic
english (ascii)…

if you have a directory named maybe something like “đirectøry” try to
cd with ?irect?ry

No for what I have done to get is sorted.

hmmmm…i am not familiar with “fsck -vf” what operating system and
version are you using?

what file system is in use on the drive?
please show us the output of


cat /etc/fstab

the other three drives are they internal?

does your mother board have four SATA connection points? or have you
added additional ports vin an expansion card, or what?

if you shut down, and move this drives connection to a different SATA
port or use a different cable, does anything change…

I will try to anser all the question above.
The drive is in ext3
The bash command is/was “cd /extra/series/” So there are no spaces or not ascii characters.
My system language is Dutch noting special there aswell. Recent update to 12.1 but the dir /extra/series/ was used after that.
ls -hal doesn’t show any extras. in root or as a user
The output from the drive out fstab

fsck -vf checks the drives for errors in a forced verbose way.
I haven’t changed any config files (except pulseaudio but that’s a other problem)
I have tried connecting the drive using USB (have just one eSATA) and works fine but I still don’t have my directory back.

The tree sites shown are firmware updates. So nothing special.

If you had an unclean shutdown on that drive, the recovery might have deleted
the directory.

You should check the lost+found directory in /extra. Your files might be there.

No noting there. And if the directory was there The files where calculated in Dolphin. But I’m missing 60GB.

i admit i’m pretty much stumped…and, guess Larry is on the right
track…and, i don’t recall exactly but i think ext4 is much less prone
to damage during a non-clean shutdown

but, i do have comments:

those were all the easy guesses, sure wish on had hit!

ok, i recall that ext3 was the default install for SUSE 10 pluse i see
evidence of having had SUSE 10 on this system…

so, your “update to 12.1” was that direct from SUSE 10, i wonder?

it is a wild guess, but sometimes really strange things can happen when
all the old (SUSE 10) system is not completely wiped out by a
format…so, i wonder if you did some form of upgrade using the DVD
instead of a clean format and install of the root/system at least…

coupled with the probably loss due to ext3 and potential for old code
laying around–when/if you find the missing 60GB you might wanna
consider a move to ext4 and format install (there is no supported method
to ‘upgrade’ from 10 to 12.1)

> fsck -vf checks the drives for errors in a forced verbose way.

hmmmmm…i do not have a man for the fsck included in 12.1, but my man
for the 11.4 version includes no such switches as either -v or -f, there
is a -V for verbose, but nothing about a ‘force’ switch…

OH! i guess you are calling fsck, but actually running fsck.ext3 which i
see does have both -fv… that question is resolved.

> (have just one eSATA) and

i think you will probably find some parts (maybe all) in lost and
found…if not, i would try to use a different cable though i doubt
that will be a magic smile maker for you…

> The tree sites shown are firmware updates. So nothing special.

??? i wonder if one of those firmware updates is to correct a problem of
‘hiding’ directories ??

sorry, i doubt i have been a lot of help.

sounds like bad karma…

you might try booting from a live CD and having a look at that drive…

or, maybe boot your 12.1 to the first green screen, press F5 and select
systemv, and then have a look…

(and, a long time ago a gray haired old man told me: always suspect the
cable first! so, i’ve mentioned it now three times…)


DD http://tinyurl.com/DD-Caveat

Well with you questions I can help you on your way.

No I have not updated from 10 to 12.1. It’s a sort of ‘backup’ system. At the time 10 was released I had a major HDD failer on my main drive. At the point I wasn’t able to but but with a live cd I could access the files. So I did a clean 10 install (have the dvd) and copied so files to get them save. And I never removed the installation because it still works fine.
I did the update from 11.4.

No files in lost and found and the cable change to USB didn’t help.

The problem is The firmware of the drive can’t be updated it’s an OEM version with an external controller to get USB and eSATA support.

But will do a smart scan now see what that will do.

it really sounds like a strange thing…i wish you great luck…i have
nothing else i can offer…but, suggest maybe you should keep
searching…but, i don’ know where…maybe one of the openSUSE mail
lists…probably opensuse@opensuse.org which you can see how to join and
post here:

maybe, someone on IRC could help…start here:

Are those “missing” blocks the ones reserved for root? You can find that with


sudo /sbin/tune2fs -l /dev/sdd1

See ‘man tune2fs’ to see how to change that number.

I have done a scan. But nothing special. It was the extended 210 minutes one.

There is 6 GB of the missing space. I went back through the thread, and I don’t
see where you ever posted the output of df for this disk.

I think you have run fsck on the volume, so that should be OK. When you checked
lost+found, did you check for hidden directories.

The disk is a bit on the old side, and has reallocated sectors.

The easiest culprit would be that the directory was moved to another
directory, so have a good look. I suggest using “mc” and check directory
sizes at each step.

Yes it’s an old drive. But a strong one and used as an allways on backup. So not that much reading and writing stuff. And I have older drives. My system HDD is a 250GB IDE drive… (soon to be replaced with a SSD)

but the outcome of df for the drive.


/dev/sdd1        961432072  428090136   484503936  47% /extra

So there is something missing as well.
And there are no hidden files on the drive. checked every thing for .* and other hidden files. The old KDE tool kdiskstat didn’t find it…

So I did a lot of searching but still no luck.
