|FSCK_MSDOS(8)||System Manager's Manual||FSCK_MSDOS(8)|
DOS/Windows (FAT) file system consistency
fsck_msdos utility verifies and
repairs FAT file systems (more commonly known as DOS file systems). It
checks the specified filesystem and tries to repair all detected
inconsistencies, requesting confirmation before making any changes.
-p flag is given,
fsck_msdos preens the specified filesystem. It is
normally started this way by fsck(8) run
from rc(8) during automatic reboot, when a
FAT file system is detected. When preening file systems,
fsck_msdos will fix common inconsistencies
non-interactively. If more serious problems are found,
fsck_msdos does not try to fix them, indicates that
it was not successful, and exits.
The options are as follows:
fsck_msdos, and is present only for compatibility with programs that check other file system types for consistency, such as fsck_ffs(8).
fsck_msdosexcept for “CONTINUE?”, which is assumed to be affirmative. The filesystem will not be opened for writing. This is the default for file systems to be checked that are concurrently mounted writable.
fsck_msdosto assume “yes” as the answer to all operator questions.
If neither of the
-n options are specified, the user may force
fsck_msdos to assume an answer of
“yes” to all the remaining questions by replying to a question
with a value of “F”.
fsck_msdos is still under
