It's ReiserFS so it's journaled. Only once in a while to I get the
error. Var log messages gives this error when I snapshot:
Dec 10 10:57:43 ino kernel: fatfs: bogus logical sector size 0
Dec 10 10:57:43 ino kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: reiserfs: checking transaction log (device
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: Using r5 hash to sort names
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: reiserfs: using 3.5.x disk format
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: ReiserFS version 3.6.25
funny thing tho, it works just fine most of the time.
