This hdd is connected via e-sata, but it doesn't make any difference if I 
directly connect it internally via sata.
Also it doesn't make any difference if I connect it back to the 'old' server

Strace is giving me:
wait4(-1, xfs_check: /dev/sdd is not a valid XFS filesystem (unexpected SB 
magic number 0x00000000)
xfs_check: WARNING - filesystem uses v1 dirs,limited functionality provided.
xfs_check: read failed: Invalid argument
cache_node_purge: refcount was 1, not zero (node=0x21ecef0)
xfs_check: cannot read root inode (22)
bad superblock magic number 0, giving up

I attached the entire strace logs to this email.

Do you have any idea what has caused this or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!
