How did I repair my system? e2fsck -f /dev/sda7

This webpage made my day:

I corrupted my /dev/sda7 partition (by checking disk speed on a boot partition) and was unable to boot my system, but after booting Linux live (ubuntu 12.04) and executing:

e2fsck -f /dev/sda7

then pressing "y" or yes many times - voila!!! my file system was repaired and I could boot my beloved linux!
