Linux volumes. But in some cases, re-sizing the partition with GParted utility become very
problematic. It can damage the quantities and cause critical data loss situations. To restore the lost
data in such circumstances, Linux Data Recovery is a need for hour.GParted is an integrated tool in
the Linux operating system that allows you to create, resize, delete, copy, move or control the
partitions hard disk and file systems on the partitions. It also creates the partition table to disk and
Enable / disable the flag hidden partition and boot. It is useful for reorganizing disk usage, to make

extra errors.At this option if you run the fsck utility after rebooting the problem remains intact. In
addition, you have additional error messages. The situations are more and more seriously in all
attempts to solve this problem. Linux superblock may be corrupted and give you an indication of the
problem corruption.The file system may be indicated by various error messages such as: "superblock
corrupted, run with-b 32768" Some warnings may also occur, indicating that the device is busy, and
it can not access. Redundant copies of the superblock is maintained by the Linux file system. To
resolve this problem, use one of these copies. You can search using alternate superblock "mkfs-n"
command.However if you can not find a superblock that is free of corruption, you need to format
the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.

Although this method can correct the problem but also removes all data from hard drive and creates
a need for data recovery Linux. You can retrieve data in Linux using a third-party data recovery Linux.
The applications allow you to perform Linux recovery on your own, simply because they have GUI
interface.Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery is applying the most advanced and widespread to
perform absolute data recovery Linux lost . It works well with all major distributions of Linux
operating system, Red Hat, Debian, Suse, Fedora and Ubuntu. The software recovers lost data from
ext4, ext3, ext2, FAT32, VFAT, FAT16 and FAT12 file system volumes.
