View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems mouting hdd while turning on the computer

Hi all!
I've followed a tutorial to add a hardrive in /etc/fstab. I've done this:

sudo echo "/dev/sda3 /media/DATA ntfs auto,users 0 1">> /etc/fstab
and then run:

sudo mount -a
And the hardrives is mounted. The problem is when I start my computer. I get an error like:

Serious errors were found while checking the disk drive for /media/DATA

Press I to ignore, S to skip mounting, or M for manual recovery
If i press I ubuntu starts properly and the hdd is mounted, but I obviously do not want to pres I every time...
Some hint on what can I do??

Check the SMART data for your drive (open Disk Management program), I think it may be failing.
