    Exclamation Disk scan at start up? annoying..



    http://img813.imageshack.us/img813/7425/dscn0519i.jpg

    computer:
    C: is dual boot (Win7 Ultimate/ Backtrack)
    D: is NTFS spare drive for storage


    Backtrack scans my hard drive once every few weeks or so, because the hard drive is mounted 31 times. That D:\ hard drive is a spare NTFS drive for storage and it is 750GB, so letting backtrack scanning it at boot up takes a long time and very annoying. So how do I disable this or configure this ? Because this delays the boot up and is very annoying, please help admins/moderators thank you.

    Have a look into modifying fstab

    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab

    I'm not sure what to do from here after this.

    Heading in the right direction though. Take a look at the link and if you're still not sure what to do then post back here. Look at your screen shot and the /dev that is being checked and compare it to the output you've pasted. You should see what's causing the fsck
