Linux Root directory is the initial point, from where the system starts looking for the files stored on the hard disk. Each file and folder that you store on your Linux-based system is marked under this root directory. It is denoted by ‘/’. The Linux root directory further subdivides into subdirectories in hierarchical form.
But you might experience frustrating experiences if this root directory gets corrupt. Besides giving certain error messages, it makes your data inaccessible. Thus it is must that you have valid copy of all the important data. But most of the times, users don’t maintain or update their backup. In such situations, you should use Linux Data Recovery applications and scan your affected disk to restore lost information.
All Linux directories (like /bin, /boot, /etc, /initrd, /usr, /home, /root tec.) are below this root directory, ‘/’. There can be several reasons that could corrupt it like unexpected shutdown, operating system errors and more. A Linux system shows abrupt behvior while the root directory is corrupt. Some of the typical errors that it shows while such situations are:
• “No such file or directory”
• System becomes unbootable
• System fails to create or delete files and folders
To solve root directory corruption issues, you should try following these methods:
• Try scanning your disk using fsck. You need to ensure that you run this command in single-user mode and the file system is not mounted.
• If fsck fails to repair file system corruption, you should reformat the disk. This process will recreate the entire file system structure.
Since formatting deletes all the data from hard disk, you need to check the status of backup. To get complete restoration results, the data backup must be completely updated and healthy. If you find that data backup cannot restore, use Data Recovery Linux tools.
Linux Data Recovery software are advanced applications that use safe scanning algorithms to locate the missing information. Such tools empower you easy data recovery through interactive user interface and well-documentation. You can use such utilities in each case of logical data loss.
