Thanks for your reply,

In fact I am running owl as a home server servicing web pages
( and other remote programs such as rsync for file
backup. The power outage was unexpected. I ran into runlevel 1, unmounted my
disc partition and ran the command e2fsck -vy /dev/mypartiotion the result was
"clean file system". An openvz container was mounted when the power outage
occurred, is it ok or shall I do something else?

Thanks in advance.
