    partition showing as 64Z

    Hi All,
    During clean up, i deleted the .Xauthority fille, After which the df -h command is showing output as:

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda3 8.9G 2.9G 5.6G 35% /
    udev 3.9G 64K 3.9G 1% /dev
    /dev/sda2 99M 16M 79M 17% /boot
    /dev/sda4 64Z 64Z 77G 100% /work

    /work data is inaccessible. I would like to know a way to restore/backup data from the /work partition.

    deleting .Xauthority shouldn't have anything to do with it, did you do anything else when you were "cleaning"?
    as for backing it up can you access it at all (any error message)?
    try to unmount the filesystem and fsck it, but if it's damaged you may lose data.

    Have you tried to mount /work partition manually?
    sudo umount /dev/sda4
    sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sda4 /work
    cd /work
    Post the output of this
    ls -l /work
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
