    Disk check every time I boot

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome 3 and every time I power on my system, there is always a disk check which is getting kind of annoying. I am dual booting with Windows 7 and also have a second hard drive in my laptop that is replacing the CD drive. The only thing I've found was this post, which hasn't worked.

    Any thoughts?

    I'm aware the instructions were on tune2fs, but have you tried
    Code:
    sudo tune2fs -c 0 /dev/sdXY

    sudo: tune2fs-c: command not found
    There must be a space between tune2fs and -c. It should be:
    sudo tune2fs -c # # # / dev / ***

    Where:
    ### is the interval of checking
    *** is the partition which has to be checked/changed




    I don't know what this tune2fs command is, but it apparently isn't working

    I cut & pasted the command you posted and it worked. This is the output:
    Code:
    chuck@5P4C3:~$ sudo tune2fs -c # # # / dev / ***
    [sudo] password for chuck: 
    tune2fs 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
    tune2fs: option requires an argument -- 'c'
    Usage: tune2fs [-c max_mounts_count] [-e errors_behavior] [-g group]
    	[-i interval[d|m|w]] [-j] [-J journal_options] [-l]
    	[-m reserved_blocks_percent] [-o [^]mount_options[,...]] [-p mmp_update_interval]
    	[-r reserved_blocks_count] [-u user] [-C mount_count] [-L volume_label]
    	[-M last_mounted_dir] [-O [^]feature[,...]]
    	[-E extended-option[,...]] [-T last_check_time] [-U UUID]
    	[ -I new_inode_size ] device
    I hate to sound like a jackass, but what did I just do here?


    Thanks for the sites, too!
