DUMPE2FS(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   DUMPE2FS(8)

NAME
       dumpe2fs	- dump ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem information

SYNOPSIS
       dumpe2fs	[ -bfhixV ] [ -o superblock=superblock ] [ -o blocksize=block-
       size ] device

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

       dumpe2fs	 is similar to Berkeley's dumpfs program for the BSD Fast File
       System.

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  filesys-
	      tem.

       -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	 e2im-
	      age, using device	as the pathname	to the image file.

       -x     print  the detailed group	information block numbers in hexadeci-
	      mal format

       -V     print the	version	number of dumpe2fs and exit.

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