    [Re]Boot Hazards


    Somewhere on the net i read that you should never do a hard reboot [[ push "Reset" ]] if you have drives mounted. Does Linux somehow lock up drives so they can be damaged in a hard reboot?

    I've never had serious harddrive problems resulting from a hard reset. Usually Linux just detects that the harddrives weren't properly unmounted, runs fsck and all is well.
