I tried using dd_rescue on my drive and it appeard to be copying over
the data until I got the message that there wasn't enough space on the
target disk? Very strange since they are the exact same size disk.
Anyway I thought I would try to run xfs_repair and see what happened.
I get the message on the intial startup of "Phase 1 find and verify
superblock... bad primary superblock - bad magic number! attempting
to find secondary superblock"
It continues on and then I get the following message "Found candidate
secondary superblock error reading superblock 22 -- seek to offset
209002168320 failed unable to verify superblock continuing"
It then appears to loop and repeat itself.
Anyone have any suggestions? Why the disk space error? shoudl I format
the replacement drive before attempting dd_rescue?
