Hi I have setup a GPT ext2 4TByte partition with parted it works
fine but after a powerfail I'm unable to repair the partition. How
can I repair the partition with
fsck ?

fsck and Parted can only repair file systems, not partition tables.  You
may want to use 'gpart' for that.

Many thanks
My partition is ok, I just want to repair the file system but :

#fsck mess up  with the superblocks
Restarting e2fsck from the beginning...
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda1

and #gpart give me an error message
# gpart /dev/sda1
*** Fatal error: ioctl(BLKGETSIZE) failed: File too large.

Any hint wellcome
