I was checking some things out and just happen to run across this message when I ran
dmesg | grep sda

The line I’m concerned with is
Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.
While I’ve not seen anything noticeably bad since my recent reinstall, I’m concerned this could be bad down the road, so I’m asking what should I do to get rid of the error and what could be causing it?
Thanks for your time,
