e2fsck -c question!


I have a RAID 1, 2 drives mirrored.
If i run e2fsck -c will it be able to detect badblocks?

Thanks

if your partitions are in extended fs - it should work if they have bad blocks. but make sure you now what raid device you wish to run e2fsck on - ie. e2fsck /dev/md0 and not just e2fsck /dev/hdX (which is a member of the array).

it is an lsi megaraid ide on red hat 9
/dev/sda3 is the root partition.
/dev/sda2 is the swap
/dev/sda1 is the /boot partition
so should i run like e2fsck -c /dev/sda3 ?

so it's just on a RAID controller but not actually set up as RAID? if that's the case - go into single or rescue mode and then run e2fsck on that partition.
