http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, yesterday I made a backup onto my external harddisk (ext3 formatted) via rsync. After some time it returned Code: rsync: stat "/media/my_harddisk/some/dir/foo.bar" failed: Input/output error (5) rsync error: some files could not be transferred (...) I then unmounted the disk and started fsck to check it. fsck told me, that the file system seems to be corrupt. I restarted fsck in repair mode and it started working. The process looked like this: Code: Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks and sizes Pass 2: Checking directory structure Pass 3: Checking directory connectivi (HowTos)
