Subject: e2fsck extremly slow after: EXT4-fs.. ext4_check_descriptors:
 Checksum for group .. failed

Hi there!

I've got this problem with an ext4 filesystem on an external usb disk
of mine, I've documented the problem (and my approaches for solving
it) here:

I started gparted and with it e2fsck is around 2012-11-04_2200 and its
2012-11-07_0923 right now (CET).
It used up nearly 57 hours of cpu time since then, and I would like to
find out if and when it will finish.
Can somebody tell me if and how I could get this information?

Thanks for developing this great filesystem, and thanks for helping me
out in my hour[s ;)] of need.

Kind Regards,

Thomas K.
