I think what Max means is that something may have corrupted existing
journal files. For example, no journaling file system (no matter how
good) can recover from having its journal files themselves corrupted
by a skipping disk head.

(Obviously, we don't know exactly what happened with your machine, so
it's hard to determine the likelihood that old data got blown away.)
