Repair Filesystem: e2fsck reports errors

#1

I was wondering how I would go about repairing the filesystem on a Drobo 5N. I have a directory that cannot be deleted because of input/output errors (on files that are no longer there).

Running fsck -nf /dev/sda1 reports a whole bunch of Inode and block errors.

Is there a way to unmount the filesystem so I can perform a repair? I found this old thread:

But it seems like a rather convoluted process. Plus, my Drobo isn’t that far gone, I can still access most folders and Drobo Dashboard does not report any errors (except that I’m running a bit low on space).
