11 Nice idea. Thanks.

17 I used gdisk to create a new partition at the end of the disk, then rebooted
18 so that the kernel would have the right disk layout. No change.
20 Just before this started, I booted Win-10 on /dev/sdb and ran its update
21 process. I don't use it for anything at the moment, just keeping it up to date
22 in case I ever do. I do this most weeks, but is it possible that Win-10
23 tampered in some way that it hasn't before? I'm seeing these errors on /dev/
24 sda (which does have an NTFS partition) and /dev/nvme0n1 (which does not), but
25 not on /dev/sdb.
