Recently my 6- years old Dell Vostro 1014 laptop with Jessie 8.7.1 OS has got a disease. It can boot only after pressing control-D and the error message was that there was error in /home . After thus booting I ran as /root fsck /home and was informed that the home partition on /dev/sda7 is busy. How shall I proceed?

I learned from google search how to cure the disease and it worked. From a live medium followed the commands: 1. #fdisk -l to know the partition numbers 2. #fsck.ext4 -v /dev/xxx o find if the partition is defective 3. #mke2fs -n /dev/xxx to know the block_numbers 4 #e2fsck -b <block_number> /dev/xxx for each block_number separately
