Hi boys and girls:

I have a problem in one my servers in India.
Local sysadmin lost access to /dev/sdb1 partition
after blackout :/

Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1             1     13215 106149456   83  Linux

The problem came to us, when local sysadmin in India had an old kernel version. (2.4.2)

He traid to run xfs_reapir but after 10 minutes running, it gave this error

xfs_repair:buf calloc failed cannot allocate memrory

After that, I upgreaded kernel version and tools.
We ran xfs_repair in single mode and now we got this message:

xfs_repair running in single mode. waiting for any message.....
error message:
fatal error -- can't read block 0 for directory 210516126

We don't want to run xfs_repair with -L switch option, to avoid loose important information (we do backups but runs once a day, and this happend before backup process :/ )

Doctors, any idea about if I can save this patient?
