    Disk checks during boot without any apparent reason


    Hi everyone,
    I've been an Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit user for one year. My Ubuntu distro is installed on an ext2 file system.
    Occasionally, I experience disk checks during boot without any system freeze or power loss.
    Sometimes, once reboot, the system works fine but Evolution Mail requests a new account, as if it was used for the very first time.
    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
    Thanks a lot for help in advance.

    Stefano

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    By default, Linux will schedule a disc check after every so many reboots. This is normal. If you want a faster check, change your file system to ext3 or ext4. It will finish in a matter of seconds instead of up to hours (depending upon file system size) for ext2 file systems. As ext3 and ext4 are versions of ext2, you can change to one of those without reinstalling the file system completely.

    As for the Evolution Mail issue, sorry but since I have never used it I am clueless as to why this happens.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
