Basically, no. You can't expect fsck a 44 TB drive with 2 GB of RAM, there is too much information to be kept while checking. However, IIRC there have been some committed patches in 7 and later which reduced the amount of memory so going with at least 7-STABLE would be better. It would of course be even better to go with 8-STABLE or wait for 9.0 which should be released in several months and then either use UFS-SUJ or ZFS. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
