I was using btrfs filesystem for some time on one of my external drives mainly to test deduplication and everything was working just fine. Unfortunately yesterday when I mounted the partition I noticed I can't write to it:
[root@X hdd]# dd if=/dev/zero of=file bs=4M count=1 dd: failed to open ‘file’: Read-only file system
I checked mount and find out that filesystem is mounted read-only (and stays that way even if I use --rw flag):
[root@X hdd]# mount (...) /dev/sdb1 on /mnt/hdd type btrfs (ro,relatime,space_cache,subvolid=5,subvol=/)
I made an assumption it's filesystem error so I tried to check it using btrfs check but sadly I get this:
[root@X]# btrfs check /dev/sdb1 Checking filesystem on /dev/sdb1 UUID: 7994d5c5-7408-4375-a24c-570456292a63 checking extents Aborted (core dumped)

Any idea how to fix this? And what can be the problem and cause?
