Failed fcsk


I have a problem with loading Whonix Workstation.

I get a message about some inconsistency. fcsk fails.
Mounting fails. Manual mounting fails.
Manual mounting with read-only requests root password.
Root password is not accepted. Default password ‘user’ is also not accepted.
Restart does the same. Recovery mode as well.

Updated recently.

The one snapshot that I have seems to be broken.
Any suggestions?

We recommend against using VBox snapshots. (Security Guide - Whonix)

Last time I had such an issue, I haven’t found a way to fix it after extended research.

So the only way is to re-install whonix and loose all my data?

As far as I know… Unless you find more clever advice as per Whonix ™ - Anonymous Operating System.
