Re: Online filesystem check

No, current version of e2fsprogs do not support online fsck. The most "online" you can get is trying to remount ro, then fsck the ro device.

Either way, does anyone know where I can find more information on it?

I'm not aware that this was a planned feature of ext2/3 fs. I've heard about the *BSD guys trying to get this done for UFS, but it's not implemented there either, AFAIK.

Not being an fs guru, online fsck really sounds difficult and I'm not sure if it's worth the battle....

Christian.
