I have a 2G IDE drive, which the boot procedure declares
is clean on mounting. However when logged in, fsck declares
that the disk has not been cleanly unmounted and then
finds all sorts of errors in the disk. On rerunning
fsck, I find more. Eventually there are no more errors,
I reboot, the disk is declared clean on mounting, and
then back in user mode, fsck finds it not clean again.
Is the disk hosed?
I assume it is hosed and accumulating errors and
presumably has errors on shutdown. So why is the disk
being marked clean on shutdown, if it has errors?
