Eliminate Slow Boots Because of Disk Checking

Filed under

AutoFsck runs the check on shutdown instead, and asks you if it is a good time first. If the occasional slow boot is a problem for you, AutoFsck is perfect.

The disk check runs has always been fairly quick on my two desktops, so it does not bother me.

I get a lot of power outages in my building. This isn't really a good idea. After a power outage, I want to run a fsck at boot before my programs run and not at shutdown.
