Parent article: Whither btrfsck?
I really don't understand why people consider fsck a part of any production environment. I'd expect a filesystem to detect corruption, avoid crashing, and attempt to continue to allow access to uncorrupted data. But for the corrupted data itself, I don't see anything wrong with saying "restore from backup if that happens", rather than "hope that fsck fixes it".
