http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all. Have some new hardware and I have my first ext4 large volume on it. I just ran my first fsck of the volume, and I've never seen an fsck run so fast in my life before! By design, do ext4 volumes fsck much faster than ext3, or is this blazing speed probably more a testament to my hardware? It just went through all five stages (error free) of about 1TB of data in a minute or two. It went so fast I can't believe it haha. (HowTos)
