    Question BT4 & xfs

    Hi, I have a hard drive which is formatted with 'xfs' and I can reach the drive in BT3, but when I want to mount the drive in BT4 it says You cannot mount 'xfs' it is look like sperblock system.. Use e2fsck to resolve.

    How can I resolve it..
    PS: Datas are very important so I cannot format the drive.

    Best bet would be to start from 3 going backwards.
    See if that helps any.
    Hit back if you need more help and remember be specific.

    Option 3 above was from the ubuntu forums and the problem was resolved.
    This did not help you at all?

    You are going to need to see if the kernel was built with XFS support before you do any thing else. Im not on backtrack but you can take a look like this...


    infected ~ # cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep XFS
    # CONFIG_XFS_FS is not set
    # CONFIG_VXFS_FS is not set
