7 Hmm ... if you have made a fs on sdd1, why are you trying to mount
8 sdf1 in your first post?
10 ... or is sdd1 now being recognised by udev as sdf1?
12 I am not sure I can suggest anything better than what you have already
13 tried. I have recovered umpteen reiserfs corruptions with no loss of
14 data so far, by running reiserfsck --fix-fixable, or --rebuild-tree.
15 However, none of these problems were due to a problematic drive or USB
16 cable - your case may be different and recovery less successful.
18 Of course, if you have storage space somewhere else it is always a
19 good idea to use dd to image the partition first before you start your
20 recovery attempts.
