Oddly, your root partition is set to NEVER automatically run an fsckQuoteMaximum mount count: -1Have you got a LiveCD/LiveUSB, so we can manually run a forced fsck whilst booted to it ?
Maximum mount count: -1
Oh crap, what have I started here I can tell you how to change it, but before I do, it may be a good idea to know which distro's and file systems everyone's using.Me -Peppermint 4Ext2Maximum mount count: 30Code: [Select]sudo blkidwill give you your filesystem typeI'm guessing the majority of you will be using Ext4 .. maybe they've changed something in the way it checks .. more research necessary.
Ok...I have to admit my knowledge of computing doesn't stretch to this...not sure what you meant by root partition and live CD/USB. When you helped me download Peppermint 3 a couple months ago you gave me links and I did download the distro onto a USB then onto a CD to load it up into this laptop- is that what you mean? Tpo premept your question- yes still got them! Partition and fsck- hmmmmm..bit stumped there!
sudo fsck -f /dev/sda1
DO NOT run that command unless booted to the LiveCD/LiveUSB .. or if the hard drive is mounted .. running fsck on a mounted partition can screw up your file system.
sudo fsck -C /dev/sda1
