fsck and Manually mounted filesystems
I want the filesystem of my external drive to be checked periodically after a numer of mounts.
I put 2 in the sixth colums of fstab for this partition
and I use the tune2fs to set the maximum mount count to 32.
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/hd ext3 rw,dev,sync,user,noauto,exec,suid 0 2
now the mount count is 34 and the date of the last check is not recent, so apparently the auto fsck has not been performed.
tune2fs -c 32 /dev/sdb
Probably because this partition is not mounted at start-up but I usually mount it manually.
This maybe a silly question but can someone explain me where is my mistake??
