#8657 closed bug (duplicate)

Corrupted files after shutdown

Blocked By: #6847 Blocking:
Platform: x86


Since about four days, when i shutdown Haiku, in most of the cases (not all times) at the next startup i find Tracker with lost settings. I run a checkfs and i found that TrackerSettings, _trk/desk_viewstate_le, tracker_shelf and syslog.old (and only for once the folder "Video" inside "home/media") are corrupted. For now this situation seems solved if i shutdown Haiku using "shutdown -q" (a quick shutdown). This situation, as i've said, happens in most of the cases, not every time. But to verify, yesterday i've shutdown Haiku for three times, and every time i found out corrupted files (but not every time all the same files). This not happen if i do a reboot or a quick shutdown (seems, at least for now).

Nothing has changed, software-wise, four days ago ?

Then this sounds very much like a dying HDD. This occured to me here : #5262

I didn't want to believe it at first, but the conclusion (in this ticket: #7783 ) ended up being very clear... These dying HDDs were the only time I had those symptoms (corrupted syslog and Tracker settings).

If I were you I would do a backup of All Important Files on the partitions of that hard-drive right now while there's still time...

EDIT: also check your syslog for messages like "ata: sense failed" in case you have this symptom too...

Hi ttcoder.

Four days ago nothing was changed, software-wide! And i'm sure that my HDD is not dying :-) In anyway i've check inside syslog and there is no message like "ata: sense failed".. If my HDD was dying, certainly, I would have noticed other symptoms too..

Looks like a similar issue to #6847 which also hasn't been resolved yet.
