A few minutes ago I shut down my computer running Fedora Core 1 and received some dma_initr error messages in the shutdown process.
When I tried to reboot I received an S.M.A.R.T. error for hdb on which my root, /boot, /swap and /home partitions lie.
Running an hardware test from IBM I received the message that there are some currupt sectors which could not be repaired because the file system isn't supported (I'm using ext2 and ext3).
Then I booted using a knoppix-cd and tried fsck and received the error message: "fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/hdb1"
Is there a possibility to recover at least my /home directory which contains a lot of importand files and hasn't been backuped for a while?
