Hello, I have a 1TB WD HDD attached to a Compaq nc6320 laptop running Fedora 17 which is mounted in fstab via:
dev/sdb2 /media/cavalry auto rw,suid,dev,exec,noauto,nouser,async 0 0
Recently, on 2 separate occasions doing multiple access to the drive caused the system to halt and needed to be rebooted. The first instance was scanning a directory of a large amount of music files to index for gnump3d. The second instance was copying a large file over the network via rsync with a bwlimit of 750kB/s. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar and has any advice. The only idea I have currently is that the rate of access is for some reason causing the system to halt. Thanks in advance.
