Repairing ReiserFS file system with reiserfsck

Filed under

We have already written about ext2/ext3 file repair using fsck and other utilities. Linux comes with different filesystems and different repair utilities. To repair a ReiserFS filesystem you need to reiserfsck command which is a checking tool for the ReiserFS filesystem (just like fsck command for ext2/ext3 file system).

Reiserfsck searches for a Reiserfs filesystem on a device, replays any necessary transactions, and either checks or repairs the file system. ReiserFS saves data or log in a special file for pending disk updates and later on it commit updates to disk resulting into very good filesystem consistency.

Step # 1: Install reiserfsck

You need to install reiserfsprogs package, which includes reiserfsck user level tools for ReiserFS filesystems.
