Compared to hours for restoring the
LMFS, not counting down time waiting for customer service.
But what about the hours lost due to corrupted files, missing data, etc.
if you are wrong about the 20 second fix?
Well, are you talking about the corrupted files, missing data, etc. if
you are wrong about DOING the 20 second fix, or NOT DOING the 20 second
I meant if the 20 second fix increases the damage to the file system instead
of decreasing it.
Well, I've been fixing filesystems for a long time, and I have yet to do
any damage I couldn't undo just as quickly. But that's because I'm
**CAREFUL**. Paranoid, even. As a result, it DOES take me somewhat
longer than 20 seconds.
But in general, even if you do blow it, you're no worse off than if you
had just punted, anyway.
