Scheduled File system checks in Ubuntu

On how to geek I found this tip:

If you’re using Ubuntu, you will notice that Ubuntu runs an FSCK session when you boot your system from time to time. If you find this scheduled check annoying, you can re-schedule the scan using the ‘tune2fs’ command. Here’s how it typically looks like:

The mount count parameter tells us that Ubuntu scans our hard disk after 33 disk mounts.

We can configure the mount count using the ‘-c’ option:
sudo tune2fs -c 35 /dev/sda1
This command will re-configure Ubuntu to scan our hard disk after 35 hard disk mounts when the system boots.
Note: change ‘/dev/sda1/’ with your own partition
