I figured I'd mount it to wheezy and copy over my personal stuff, like an
email corpus well over 15GB reaching back to 2002.
But I can't mount much of the drive, / is all that will actually mount,
because the 2 versions of ext4 are incompatible, nearly all the mount
and e2tools can't touch the installers ext4 file systems.
If you unmounted cleanly you don't need fsck. Install a newer kernel
from wheezy backports and it should mount fine.
