Earlier you posted this:

Tested with Gparted, no errors found...

The thing is Gparted is doing the check using this same program. e2fsck.
STRANGE!!

Run the check several times to see if it always says no errors.

Wonder if you have a drive going bad Idea
Just Puppy luck it is acting up when using Puppy.


This is what I would do.
Delete the partition.
Make a new partition from the now unallocated space.
Format it to ext 3.

Try to copy anything on the ext4 partition you want to keep to some other location.

Boot Xenialpup from something other than the hard drive.
A live install on a USB flash drive or a CD/DVD.

The drive the partition is on cannot be mounted or at least the partition cannot be mounted.

Run Gparted and delete, partition, and format.


Maybe, I will need to do your suggestion. However, it's very strange that I can use this partition perfectly with precise puppy or artful, and Gparted found no errors.

Thanks for your help, Bigpup. I have learned with you in this and other topics in this forum. Best wishes

I agree this is a strange one!

Xenialpup may be more sensitive to any errors in the file system.

You did post running e2fsck gives superblock errors.


Here is some good info on superblocks and how to fix the problem.

What is more strange is that this partition writes and reads normally, and can be mount and unmount as well, even when running xenial. The issue happens just when rebooting or shuting down

Hi Bigpup. Great! I hope he has a solution.
I made a new analysis, this time with Testdisk. It found no errors in the partition. More strange things
