fsck for msdos filesystem?

Post by Joern Rennec » Wed, 15 Sep 1993 15:20:54



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.
If you mean a native Linux dosfsck, I don't know of one.

At sunsite (and the other sites, I imagine) there is a fsck util for
msdos filesystems I believe.

sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/system/Filesystems/dosfs/dosfsck.1.tar.z
tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux/ALPHA/dosfs/dosfsck.1.tar.z

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

There's a new pub/Linux/system/Filesystems/dosfs/dosfsck.1.tar.z
on sunsite.unc.edu.
More great stuff from Werner, author of (Most Excellent) LILO!
It compiles fine on gcc-2.4.5 with libc-4.4.1.
The README says Warning! Alpha! and the program likes my uncorrupted dosfses.
(No I won't corrupt a disk just to test dosfsck!
These days I use ext2 fses on floppies; to heck with DOS! :-)

1. fsck fsck fsck say I

[[[Ouch.  Sorry.  Ouch.  The first edition of this text lost the first
word of its Subject.  Fixed now]]]

I remember I first learned of `fsck -f -y /` after `umount /` in the
thread:

Newsgroups: comp.unix.shell
Subject: fsck fsck fsck say I
http://groups.google.com/groups?threadm=2695edf1.0312021221.72f242a3%...

Speaking again now of fsck'ing on demand, eventually I also noticed,
...

My `man -k fsck` does not yet, but could/ should, point to:

--- http://www.google.com/search?q=linux+man+shutdown
--- http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man8/shutdown.8.html
...
-f
Skip fsck on reboot.
-F
Force fsck on reboot.
