I have some bad sectors on my hard drive, so I followed the guide from this website
To detect the bad sectors, I did the following command:
sudo badblocks /dev/sda5 > /media/3865-6163/sda5
That worked fine, the next step is to run the following command:
sudo fsck -l /media/3865-6163/sda5 /dev/sda5
For some reason, this does not work for me and gives me the following message:
ubuntu@ubuntu:/media/3865-6163$ sudo fsck -l /media/3865-6163/sda5 /dev/sda5 fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 Usage: fsck.ext4 [-panyrcdfvtDFV] [-b superblock] [-B blocksize] [-I inode_buffer_blocks] [-P process_inode_size] [-l|-L bad_blocks_file] [-C fd] [-j external_journal] [-E extended-options] device Emergency help: -p Automatic repair (no questions) -n Make no changes to the filesystem -y Assume "yes" to all questions -c Check for bad blocks and add them to the badblock list -f Force checking even if filesystem is marked clean -v Be verbose -b superblock Use alternative superblock -B blocksize Force blocksize when looking for superblock -j external_journal Set location of the external journal -l bad_blocks_file Add to badblocks list -L bad_blocks_file Set badblocks list ubuntu@ubuntu:/media/3865-6163$
Why is this not working?
