NAME

       dumpe2fs - dump ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem information

SYNOPSIS

       dumpe2fs   [   -bfhixV   ]   [   -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).

       -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.
