I've my drive setup like this:

I've tried shutting down to single-user mode and then remounting / as

tricks to getting the xfs utilities to check mounted filesystems? Or
maybe there's a better way to approach this I just haven't thought of?
Have you tried booting from one of the many live distro's out there...
then you should be able to fsck your drive using that.
Thats how i got round my problem with them in use all the time.
