View Full Version : debug copied filesystem

10th March 2007, 09:30 PM
I tried copying one partition to another using both gparted and qtparted on fedora, knoppix and the gparted boot cd, but could not; paste will not work, i would assume because the partition is a logical partition.

i copied the partition using dd instead. all the files are there, but i keep running into the error that the file system size according to the superblock is greater than the physical partition size. how do i correct the superblock?

if anyone else has the same problem, i just used resize2fs to change the filesystem size, then used gparted. gparted wouldnt do anything initially because it performs tests on file system integrity before executing a command.
