NAME

       dumpe2fs - dump ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem information

SYNOPSIS

       dumpe2fs [ -bfghixV ] [ -o superblock=superblock ] [ -o blocksize=blocksize ] device

DESCRIPTION

       dumpe2fs prints the super block and blocks group information for the filesystem present on
       device.

       Note: When used with  a  mounted  filesystem,  the  printed  information  may  be  old  or
       inconsistent.

OPTIONS

       -b     print the blocks which are reserved as bad in the filesystem.

       -o superblock=superblock
              use the block superblock when examining the filesystem.  This option is not usually
              needed except by a filesystem wizard who is examining the remains of a  very  badly
              corrupted filesystem.

       -o blocksize=blocksize
              use  blocks  of  blocksize bytes when examining the filesystem.  This option is not
              usually needed except by a filesystem wizard who is examining the remains of a very
              badly corrupted filesystem.

       -f     force  dumpe2fs  to  display  a  filesystem even though it may have some filesystem
              feature flags which dumpe2fs may not  understand  (and  which  can  cause  some  of
              dumpe2fs's display to be suspect).

       -g     display  the  group  descriptor  information  in a machine readable colon-separated
              value format.  The fields displayed are the group number; the number of  the  first
              block  in  the  group; the superblock location (or -1 if not present); the range of
              blocks used by the group descriptors (or -1  if  not  present);  the  block  bitmap
              location;  the  inode  bitmap  location;  and the range of blocks used by the inode
              table.

       -h     only display the superblock information and not any of the block  group  descriptor
              detail information.

       -i     display  the filesystem data from an image file created by e2image, using device as
              the pathname to the image file.

       -x     print the detailed group information block numbers in hexadecimal format

       -V     print the version number of dumpe2fs and exit.

BUGS

       You need to know the physical filesystem structure to understand the output.
