Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

  Quote  /dev/sdb1 is the partition path - allows fs checking only.
/dev/sdb is the disk hardware for bad sector checking.


I've spent too much time inside Windoze......

I fecking knew that too, as all my Puppy servers are /dev/sda1 etc - the first partition on the sda drive, and other volumes have other partitions like sda1, sda2, sda3 etc....

Should have spotted that!    

Still learning!  

EDIT: added quote as we are now on a new page.
