There was a power failure earlier today, and now my system won't boot anymore. It shows the following error message and drops me to a root shell to try and recover the data for myself:
Log of fsck -C -R -A -a Sat Jul 30 12:56:49 2016 fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 fsck.ext4: No such file or diretory while trying to open /dev/sdc1 Possibly non-existent device? /dev/sdb3: clean, 3040/61054976 files, 178253587/244189696 blocks fsck died with exit status 8 Sat Jul 30 12:56:49 2016
/dev/sdc is my storage hard drive. I checked in the BIOS and it is still detected there. But when Debian boots and drops me to the shell, I can't find
/dev/sdc anywhere, let alone
Is there any hope at all to recover my data? It's mostly things I can re-download, but it also had a few virtual machines and their backups.
I'm not sure where to take it from there. I would
fsck the partition but I can't see it at all, it's like
/dev/sdc doesn't even exist anymore and the drive isn't plugged in as far as Debian is concerned.
