Almost all data goes cached before going onto the disk. Your memory mal

These are just *some* of a long list of reasons to check your disks with
some regularity. And being on the safe side is, of course, not a bad idea.
I didn't intend to stop fscking, just to tweak the rate a bit.
Another question: would filesystem errors be rsync'ed to my backups?
