I've recently encountered some strange file system corruption problems.
Here's the results of running e2fsck

# e2fsck -f -b 40961 /dev/sdb6
e2fsck 1.21-WIP, 14-Jun-2001 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Unconnected directory inode 11 (???)

The problem probably is, that on most of my ext2 filesystems lost+found *is inode 11*. That means that e2fsck is probably trying to move lost+found to itself.

However I have also ext2 filesystems with lost+found being other inode numbers. So maybe the solution is to say NO to the above question from fsck, then manually removing lost+found, creating a new one, and fscking again. Of course I don't take responsibility for this.
