Change the frequency of disk checks

Post by Husse » Mon Mar 05, 2007 7:40 am

Every 30 times a partition is mounted it gets checked for error on boot.
I've seen the name of the tool performing the check, but I'm not sure what it is, fsck perhaps.
How do I control this?
Twice a year or some such would be more appropriate in my mind, but on the other hand better safe than sorry..
And how can it be stopped from checking NTFS and FAT32 partitions, I've had some really bad experience with that

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
