e2fsck two external arrays at once


If I umount both of them, can I run an e2fsck on each at the same time through 2 putty sessions, or will that not really gain me anything from doing them one after another?

If they are on one system, you can only run one at a time.

Josh

To add to that - You should definitely unmount them first; That being said, run one at a time, unless you want it to take a lot longer, that is if they are on the same system like I said.

Thanks Josh. Good to know its not even possible. Seems there wouldn't be any advantage to doing it that way even if you could.

I just added to my post - Technically, yes it is possible, but I recommend running one at a time for system performance issues.
