Subject: chiara backup 

fsck of chiara backup disk (UUID="90a5c98a-22fb-4685-9c17-77ed07a5e000") was done. But this required many files to be fixed. So the backed-up files are not reliable now.
On the top of that, the disk became not recognized from the machine.

I went to the disk and disconnected the USB and then the power supply, which was/is connected to the UPS.
Then they are reconnected again. This made the disk came back as /media/90a5c98a-22fb-4685-9c17-77ed07a5e000. (*)
After unmounting this disk, I ran "sudo mount -a" to follow the way of mounting as fstab does.
Now I am running the backup script manually so that we can pretend to maintain a snapshot of the day at least.

(*) This is the same situation we found at the recovery from the power shutdown. So my hypothesis is that on Oct 16 at 7 AM during the backup there was a USB failure or disk failure or something which unmounted the disk. This caused some files got damaged. Also this caused the disk mounted as /media/90a5c98a-22fb-4685-9c17-77ed07a5e000. So since then, we did not have the backup.
Update (20:00): The disk connection failed again. I think this disk is no longer reliable.
