Re: resize2fs: Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!

I do the same thing.
Maybe it's just superstition, but it's fairly rare to lose a whole
hard drive, but fairly common to corrupt a filesystem.
Such corruption usually happens when you (intentionally) write to a
filesystem. It could happen otherwise, because of some wildly buggy
kernel code writing outside the proper partition, but I would expect
that to be rare.
So if you have separate filesystems, /tmp, /var and /home are likely
to get corrupted, but /boot and / aren't so likely. In the event of
this kind of corruption, you should still be able to boot.
