Hehe, gee thanks! :)

No changes were made to the hardware, though as I mentioned originally I
did loose power twice within a few hours, and it was the 2nd time the
issue appeared.

Having said that, after "fixing" the issue (updating the fstab entry) I
have since installed a few updates, and it broke again (remapped back to
sdc). :/

I think this is going to be my only option (unless I want to keep
updating fstab entries each time _something_ updates on the box).  Time
to visit google again.  I realise this is now way off topic, but is
there a "preferred method" with regards to mounting by labels or uuid?


Thanks.

Stephen.
