fsck_ufs running too often

Hi, since a few of days ago, I noticed my home server turns very slow more than once a day, so every time I run "top" to see what's processes are running, I can see fsck_ufs at the very top, and the hard drive working like mad.

I've checked my crontab and there's nothing related to fsck_ufs, where can I start searching for the cause of the problem?, I thought this process should run only at boot or shutdown, but this time it is running -apparently- without a cause.
