[SOLVED] fsck using ~90GB+ memory

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Long story short: I backed up ~5TB of media to a USB3 6TB array. I think there were 2 different mount points for the USB3 array. I didn't check the USB3 array before killing the original. I'm doing fsck on the array and is taking all day. It ran out of memory so I added a spare 130GB partition for swap. Not horribly slow writing at ~80MB/s. Code: [root@svrns ~]# free -g                                                            &nbs (HowTos)
