Hard Disk Repair - How To?
I am running FC4 and have had no problems for quite a while. This morning I log in and do an "ls". Response: "Segmentation Fault". I change directories and do an "ls". "Segementation Fault". I hit tab to see what's in the directory... Oh there's files there all right, but not the ones I'm expecting. So, I blame the recent heat wave and consider my HDD fried. I type in the e2fsck -ycfv /dev/hda1 ... I get the message about causing severe damage repairing a mounted filesystem...
Now here's the question. I'm not actually physically at the machine. Will this actually cause severe damage? Do I have to actually make my way to that machine and do it all while sitting in front of it?
