Topic: Data corruption after resizing ext4 partitions.
Today I wanted to resize some partitions to redistribute better the available space. The partitions were ext4 and I used gparted live 0.4.6 (the last stable according to the website)
Gparted seemed to make all the chages without errors, the system booted fine. When it reached the login manager (KDM) I switched to a virtual terminal and restarted forcing a fsck (shutdown -F) When the system booted, it found errors on my main partition but seemed to correct them. The other partitions didn't reported errors.
I shrinked my main partition (/) and enlarged others (/home)
The thing is that some files have been zeroed ( I suspect at least of http://pastebin.com/d11e35dfe )
The e2fsprogs version shiped with 0.4.6 is 1.41.3. The changelog shows that since then, there have been a lot of fixes on ext4 resizing.
Do you have any tip on what steps should I take to recover the system? I have backups of most of my personal data. I also could reinstall the packages or simply reinstall the whole system, but I would want to avoid that hassle.
PS: Please, update the e2fsprogs version or put a warning on the download page about the issue.
PS2: I also wrote a post in the archlinux forums about the issue http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=89221
