Prevent Automatic Partition Check During Boot in Linux

Let's be sincere, the automatic partition checks Linux does once in a while upon booting serves no purpose. It is better to run gparted and check your partitions since that program is more capable of fixing whatever common corruption may be present.
To prevent Linux to engage in automatic checks further edit the partition entries in /etc/fstab to end with two ceros, like the following line, which mounts an NTFS partition.
/dev/sda2 /mnt/bk ntfs-3g rw,exec,noatime,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
