Question Does mounting HDD with "flush" & "sync" have any real use?


For example - to protect files from losing in case of power failures.

It may help a little, though a good journalled file system will prevent most cases of loss in the event of a sudden loss in power.

I would recommend the data=journal mount option. All data is written to the journal before being committed.
