** Phase 2-- Check Pathnames


The fsck(1M) command is checking a file system, and fsck(1M) is now removing directory entries pointing to bad inodes that were discovered in phases 1 and 1b. This phase might ask you to remove files, salvage directories, fix inodes, reallocate blocks, and so on.


If more than a dozen errors occur during this important phase, you might want to restore the file system from backup tapes. Otherwise it is fine to proceed with fsck(1M).
