Today, there was a power failure while I had an msdos filesystem mounted
read/write . The minix/xiafs filesystems fsck/xfsck'd OK, but what do
I have to do to check the integrity of the msdos filesystem?
Well, you can always use DOS chkdsk /f. This also works fine under DOSEMU.Quote:>Today, there was a power failure while I had an msdos filesystem mounted

Don't know how well it works, though....

I remember I first learned of `fsck -f -y /` after `umount /` in the
Subject: fsck fsck fsck say I
Speaking again now of fsck'ing on demand, eventually I also noticed,
My `man -k fsck` does not yet, but could/ should, point to:
Skip fsck on reboot.
Force fsck on reboot.
