Agreed. I am trying to keep the amount of typing to an absolute minimum here, for people intimidated by the shell scripts and the linux command line. I recommend a proper shutdown rather than a hard reset whenever possible, so the system has an opportunity to unmount the disks cleanly.

I do not know if it would be better to tell people to always unmount the disk, or just unmount it before doing a hard reset. The problem is that if you document all the corner cases, it begins to look like the posts that this simplified version was meant to replace.

EDIT: Rather than specifically saying to unmount it, I changed the order of restoring, and mount and repair, to eliminate that confusion.
