Using fsck (be careful!)
- 15 Feb 2010
Fsck is a disk checking utility which calls underlying utils like fsck.ext2. Generally it should not
be used on a mounted file system as it can cause corruption. However...
To look at the system parameters do something like:
tune2fs -l /dev/sda6
to force fsck to run at boot time look at the maximum mount count and the current mount count from the above. Then do
tune2fs -C 30 /dev/sda6 assuming 30 is above the max. Now reboot.
reboot -Fr might also work...
