glad to hear you got it fixed. was probably just a few corrupted sectors from the drive being jolted or from hard shutdowns. and yeah, ~ 8gb or so would be a bit better for linux, but it does depend on the distro.
i'm not sure what kind of utils PM has for that kind of thing but it does sound like the data on the HDD is errored somewhere. I would try a more robust utility like norotn disk doctor is what i use to keep my drive straight. Hope this...
