Good morning,

I have a small server with an SSD drive in it that is having some problems.

Notably, dmesg has been repeatedly reporting the following error message:

	g_vfs_done():ad0s1a[READ(offset=-574217714356717568, length=16384)]error = 5

I realize that the best course of action is to replace the disk and restore from a backup, but this isn't really an option immediately.

So, is there a way to "mark the inode bad" and then launch an fsck ?  How can I turn "offset=-574217714356717568" into a usable piece of information?

Any suggestion welcome.
