Re: [Plug] Scandisk

You can use fsck -- specificly e2fsck.  File systems check.  One thing
to keep in mind is to not have the file system mounted when you do this...
modifying a file system while you are checking it is like russian roulette.

On reboot a message came up as it was mounting the drives and said something to the effect system was not shutdown correctly  check forced. It went through and fixed the drives and rebooted with no problem. Now I was wondering, How do I check drives for errors comparable to scandisk in windows?
