For the past week or so, almost every time I boot Mint, it pauses while it does a hard drive check. It doesn't show any error messages.
Does this mean that my IDE hard drive is going faulty, or is it something else? If it's the hard drive, I will replace it before it dies and I lose my Mint installation!
If the hard drive is OK, how can I stop these constant checks?
Many thanks for any advice.
