Running /bin/fix-disk Custom firmware version 2.15 Checking disk sdb Using superblock 0 on sdb3 Using superblock 0 on sdb1 Using superblock 0 on sdb2 Unmounted /dev/sdb1 Unmounted /dev/sdb2 Unmounted /dev/sdb3 Pending sector error(s) found Running disk self test Error - pending sectors but LBA not found Press return to continue:
This additional test/repair does not appear to run and it only runs the disk self test which counts down from 56 to 0 (says it's 'waiting') and the whole process only takes about a minute to completeIf the web interface hard disk diagnostic highlights attributes 197 or 198 in red, then the additional fix-disk test/repair should run
Much of that thread is out of date information. In particular, if you try to run a long test and then run the CF 2.15 version of fix-disk, it will ignore the results of the long test and then perform its own short test. This will not necessarily find the location of the error.
My aim in the QSG is to offer disk recovery for previously non-CF users looking for a solution to a disk problem. I take it the new fix-disk would not run without further installation - will 2.16 incorporate it in the base firmware?No need to wait for 2.16. The updated fix-disk package has been available for a while. As long as the disk is still behaving reasonably well, it can be installed to bring the disk checking up-to-date.
Closing the telnet session will also close the fix-disk session so I would recommend leaving it open for the duration of the tests. If you do close the session then fix-disk would have to be run again so it would take a further two or more hours.Just a quick question:-
Now that the test is running, will it continue to run on the Humax if I close the telnet session and shut down my computer
AFAIK the plan is for the each new version of CF to include the latest version of fix-disk. If (as in this case) a user needs a newer version then it can be installed from the package management system assuming the disk is not read only.My aim in the QSG is to offer disk recovery for previously non-CF users looking for a solution to a disk problem.
