fsck options after you forget to umount your USB Stick?

Hi all,

As a specialist of “You did forgot to umount your USB Stick” in my virtual machine / local Laptop I always end up with “your USB drive was not unmounted properly”.

    Here is what I do to fix the USB Stick:
  • # lsusb ## need to check if the USB Stick is recognized
  • # df -h ## only one out of many options to check if and where the USB Stick is mounted
  • # fsck -Va /dev/
  • wait and relax – than DO NOT FORGET TO umount YOUR STICK
