Your /etc/fstab would be helpful to analyse the problem.

Hi

add this to your /etc/fstab file

/dev/sdc5 /vol1 "filesystemtype" defaults 0 0

An example is an enntry from my /etc/fstab file

# /dev/hdb6 /ftp/sales reiserfs defaults 1 2

Cheers

defaults 1 2

here 1 indicates dump It means that this partition or drive needs to be backed up via dump facility in Linux.

2 indicates fsck check. The value of "1" is used for the first drive (generally a root partition) to be checked via fsck. 2 means those drives which are checked by fsck after the root partition.

hence defaults 0 0 means that there will be no dumping or backup of the data on this drive by linux and there will be no fsck check. Read some more on this topic on linux websites or documentation.
