OK I stand corrected... softupdates "reduces" the possibility of having to fsck a filesystem....

After an unclean shutdown fsck runs in the background. And sometimes it can't do that. Here's an example: Jul 23 17:54:01 zoe fsck: /dev/amrd0s1g: CANNOT CREATE SNAPSHOT /d1/.snap/fsck_snapshot: File too large Jul 23 17:54:01 zoe fsck: Jul 23 17:54:01 zoe fsck: /dev/amrd0s1g: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. The /etc/defaults/rc.conf file has a comment on this too: background_fsck="YES" # Attempt to run fsck in the background where possible. Frem.
