Now that is interesting. I will have to experiment with that one.

I have several large systems that sooner or later will need to FSCK. In the
past I would schedule a fsck on reboot over a long holiday, and hope no one
needed anything, or set up another synced copy for that time. It takes a lot
of planning, and careful re-syncing if something changed.
