Constant fsck on every boot in Arch Linux with a Seagate 1TB HDD


/dev/sdXn contains a file system with errors, check forced.

every time you boot and fsck never finds an error, then you need to have fsck run at an earlier stage to fix this.

  1. Add “fsck” to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf in accordance with the instructions on Arch Wiki’s mkinitcpio page.
  2. Run “sudo mkinitcpio -p linux”.
  3. Reboot.

It will update the HDD’s status that there are no errors after this fsck run.
