Mount count weirdness
Heyla, just wondering if anyone can help me with some odd behaviour I'm getting.
I'm running a USB hard drive with an EXT3 partition, which I mostly mount under Knoppix 3.3 running from the CD.
I then use Samba to allow myself to map a drive from Windows. (Damn work computers!)
The strange behaviour I'm getting is all to do with the mount count on the drive.
Now, the Knoppix CD I am running is not the most stable, and it often seems to lose the ability to read from the CD, which streams a series of error messages across the console, and I need to shut down and restart to do anything, although I can still access the USB drive through Samba, since it's already running.
Now, what I'm finding is that after only a couple of days, I get "maximal mount count reached" warnings when mounting the USB drive. So I run fsck, and it tells me it's been mounted 17971 times. This seems a little excessive.
So, does anyone know why it might be getting such a ridiculous mount count? I've tried STFW, but haven't been able to find anything resembling this. Current Mood: curious
