Is there a way to disable disk checks in a mounted usb drive?
I have a 500GB usb mounted drive in my CentOS machine and everytime I reboot my system, it does disk checks which is a long painstaking process.
More details are needed. I have a usb system that operates on a main drive that is smaller than the usb drive but takes a while to boot up. You could try removing temporary files and or disabling acpi, power management.
Sorry for not adding much details to this.
Basically the usb drive is an ext2 form.
When I shutdown, I do not unmount nor physically disconnect the usb drive.
Basically what I intend on doing to this is to act as a secondary drive in the server to store files etc.
No sharing as of yet I plan on doing to this usb drive, just basically connect to the server and hoping to keep this connected for as long as the server lives - this is why Im hoping to disable the disk checks so when I reboot it doesnt go through to this process and take a while the server to boot up.
