USB drive corrupted filesystem
Hi! I have a USB drive which I use for backing up files with the help of grsync. Today, when I went to back up some files, rsync partially completed the operation before complaining that the file system was read only. I then attempted to delete the problem directory from the USB drive. Most of the files in the directory could be deleted OK but some could not due to a "read only file system" error. This led me to think the file system may be partially corrupted.
Would it be quicker to repair the file system or to reformat the drive and re-backup my files? If repairing is the way to go how do I go about doing this?
Thanks in advance!
