Of course, I like the sound of that! But read failure errors are still a concern.... it's hard to put faith and trust in it, although you might use it for many months and not really experience any problems.It is running much better though.
sudo su # do this first to get root e2fsck -c /dev/sda1
That works fine with me, I have a few ideas and I'll put some structure to them and bring 'em back.Might be tomorrow before I can do this....
sudo su e2fsck -c /dev/sda2]
Did it twice and will only go 10%.....That looks better than sda1. Lol.
Now reboot back on hard drive and run the GSmartControl with the short test. If no errors, run it with the long test. Just trying to determine if e2fsck did what I hoped and marked the bad blocks.
Oh well..... I sure do appreciate all the help from all of you! At least it is running better, noticeably better . I wouldn't have known what to do and am not very good at searches, all the info out there gets confusing when you don't know what you are doing lolOh well. It showed the same LBA too, so that's not very encouraging. Maybe that Wizard fellow will have some better suggestions... he usually does.
I'm running out of ideas.
LMAO Well, both are coming up but doubt anyone can afford it hahaha. I don't even have any idea what to look for either.......We hate to admit defeat! Lol
I'm glad it seems to be working better though. And maybe Wizard will pull a rabbit out of his hat, or something.
But I'm afraid problems will continue to pop up as you go along. You may lose data, so you do want to do careful backups of things you want to keep.
Maybe a new hard drive could be a birthday or Christmas request.
