A few months ago I created an ext3 file system on one of my partitions. I received the following message:

"mkfs.ext3 /dev/sddx; system will be checked every 20 mounts or 180 days; use tune2fs -c or -i to override".

How can I determine how many times this file system has been mounted?

1 Answer 1


tune2fs -l /dev/sddX will give the info you need, in particular the "Mount count" and "Last mount time"
