Q: Why fsck is not enough?
And if you did, you should newfs(8) the file system when
you replaced the cables with good ones.
Then re-install from your backup. DragonFly's journaling
feature allows for nice "live" backup streams that can be
stored on another media. ;-)
That's too easy for me. Recovering system file by file and debugging
problems give me much more pleasure :-) Live backup would be nice, but
i have only 1 HDD. Last 3 months i've broken 5 HDD, that magic power
in my fingers is extremely destructive.
Or if you have a mirror (RAID1) setup, and the problem did
not affect all mirror disks, then you can simply rebuild
the failed component, of course.
Im going to buy new computer, with some SCSI array :-) That would be
nice possiblity to do some RAIDing. I've used RAID0 a few times, and 5
too, but on linux and IDE disks..
