I have a fairly new Debian 3.1 system running Samba that I use as a
home fileserver. The machine has a 30GB drive set up with / and swap
Recently when running backups from Windows machines I've started
getting errors that say one or more files don't verify correctly. They
are not files that are in use at the time of the backup or verify and
if I perform multiple backups in a row different files will not
verify. On the last instance of this happening there were 3 files out
of several thousand that did not verify correctly.
This sounds as if there may be one or more bad blocks. What's the most
appropriate way to check and/or the filesystem?
Thanks for any pointers to utilities or articles.
