Q: What can I do if FSCK cannot fix my file system and / or I get “Bad Inode Number”, “Bad Super Block” or “Magic Number” errors when running FSCK?
A:
These are serious errors and not easy to fix. Please read:

  • software raid 5 has GPT error and will not boot

You can try to clear the inode with clri and hope more data is recovered with subsequent fsck.

  clri /dev/raid5/RAID5p1 153794560
Before you try clri you should try:
  fsck -y /dev/raid5/RAID5p1
  This slightly different fsck may have better luck fixing the inodes. If neither work then data recovery software is your only alternative.
