Recently I update my HDD on desktop machine, and bought WD Caviar Black.
But after I format & copy information to it (using dd), and fix partitions size: I have next errors in kern.log:

One time, machine rebooted (not manually), when I turn it on, it runs fsck on /dev/sdc2 and fix some errors and some files are missing on /dev/sdc2

I'v check /dev/sdc2 for badblocks, it doesn't have it ( using e2fsck -c /dev/sdc2 ) Here is the output of fsck http://pastebin.com/D5LmLVBY

What else I can do to understand what's wrong here?

BTW for /dev/sdc1 no message like that, in kern.log

Linux version: 3.3.0
Distributive: Debian wheezy

There is a bug in linux 3.3.
The upstream fix is commit b0dd6b70f0fda17ae9762fbb72d98e40a4f66556.

This problem can be reproduced via:

        mke2fs -q -t ext4 -O ^flex_bg /dev/vdd 5g
        mount -t ext4 /dev/vdd /mnt
        fallocate -l 4600m /mnt/test

I got the same problem on CentOS 5.8 and kernel 2.6.18-308.13.1.el5 –  Spacedust Sep 7 '12 at 11:06
