    Sorry for reviving an aincient thread, but this is the top google hit for the question and I have been searching around for ages until coming up with the answer.

    The journal dump itself does not seem to be very informative, what you can do is limit it's scope by providing it with an inode number:
    # debugfs /dev/whatever -R "logdump -i <inodenumberhere>"
    Which will somehow magically provide you with more detail, containing the backlog of file metadata changes you can use to reconstruct what was happening with the file. Please keep in mind that the journal resets on every rw mount (effectivelly, every boot) and tends to wrap around in a destructive sort of way if it runs out.
