    I'm running e2fsck on a very large partition (a 6.x TB Drobo with over 3 TB of data) whose journal has been significantly hosed. Unfortunately, I did NOT run it in passive mode (-y I believe), and as such I am sitting here pressing "y" endlessly.

    Can I CTRL+C e2fsck, and then re-run it in passive, or will this corrupt the process?
