/boot/efi corrupt on droplet

dmesg gives me an error, I’m concerned about.

[6.191188] FAT-fs (vda15): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.

df tells me this is the efi partion, which is something I would never touch

/dev/vda15 105M 6.7M 98M 7% /boot/efi

So running fsck seems to risky to me. More people seeing this problem? Or have tips or a command ready to fix it?

Hi there,

Indeed, before proceeding with any action, I would recommend backing up any important data that you have on that Droplet so that you could make sure you have a copy in case something goes wrong during the repair process.

Another option is to create a snapshot of that Droplet and try to run the recovery process on a restored copy of the Droplet which could act as your staging environment before you try the fix on your live environment.

Let me know how it goes!
