Re: [HDD problem] Strange remount read-only
You can have good practices, to avoid exposing the drive to unnecessary
danger, like mechanic impact, eletric fields or bad power supply. All
this won't make sure you are safe from badblocks, but will hopefully
help. But this is BEFORE the problem. After badblocks appear, theres
nothing to do to save the drive, unless you believe in magic, vodoo,
freezing the drive and then warming it up and other folk stories...
What you can try to do is save whatever data is possible to be saved
from it, backing it all up. Do it soon.

If I umount the partition, do e2fsck -y /dev/hdb5 and remount,
fine for 2-3 hours, and then it happens again.
I think it is only a software problem, what can I do to fix the problem?
Thanks and bye
Looks like hw failure to me (badblocks?).
I did "fsck.ext3 -c /dev/hdb5". It finds many badblock, but it is useless. How
can I avoid badblocks?
