Thinking about all this, it looked promising to me to use sshfs on one Olive, to mount the other Olive's music partition (or whatever) to itself, and than do the backup. But alas, there is no sshfs...

Making backups directly to another location is really neat. I can't do that. But I can keep one of the backup drives somewhere else, although I still don't.
Backups are done here with the USB drive...

That would be nice.

In the mean time I did not write about the way that I make backups of my Olive 4.
I wonder if anyone here is still waiting for it.

Nice! Verrrrry nice.
Now go for the Linux version. 😕
But it could be ok to have the source code of course.

This seems to me rather a problem with the motherboard than with the hard disk. With or without a hard disk, the Olive should be able to come in recovery state, one way or the other.

If you also fscked partition 1, then you are in bad luck. That partition should not be touched by such clever programs.
If you did so, the only way out is the recovery, but if you have valuable...

There is no way to fsck the system partition. That is, without altering the boot-up process completely.

With errors on partition 2 and 3 you never know how your Olive behaves. Having repaired them, if possible, gives you at least a healthy Olive system back. So that may prove to be the whole problem....

I love this 7 or even older technology, and I never want an Olive One now I have an super sounding O Live Four.
Just wait a few years more and it is vintage. Like an old wine.

Anyway, I make backups so that the backup disk...

That looks promising.
If you are lucky, the 2. partition contains some files, making it a system partition.
Then, with clonezilla (google for that), you could copy the partition scheme and...

You really should examine the disk after freezing. Maybe it has two partitions, 1 and 2, or/and it just lacks the extended 4. partition. You can create that yourself.

Maybe it's not the MB, but just a software malfunction. I have seen one Olive with a faulty MB, and that one did not even start up.
Problems with the recovery are quite common.

Why not buy a second hand Olive 4HD? I have 3 Olives for that purpose. I have been lucky that only the screen failed after too many lid openings, so far.
