i have a usb hard drive i have formated it to ext3
ever once in a while my hard drive fails to mount with the message bus timed out error
believing it needs to have a fsck check, i start a fsck check on the drive, after 24 hours, and no updates on screen.
i unplug the drive and run fsck on my desktop
I get error after error on the desktop
so what am i doing wrong?

and how do i recover lost files?


Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
but instead use OpenDocument File Formats or 
use OpenOffice
