fsck.fat - check and repair MS-DOS filesystems
fsck.fat|fsck.msdos|fsck.vfat [-aAflnprtvVwy] [-d PATH -d ...] [-u PATH -u ...] DEVICE
fsck.fat verifies the consistency of MS-DOS filesystems and optionally tries to repair them.
The following filesystem problems can be corrected (in this order):
Additionally, the following problems are detected, but not repaired:
When fsck.fat checks a filesystem, it accumulates all changes in memory and performs them only after all checks are complete. This can be disabled with the -w option.
Note: If -a and -r are absent, the filesystem is only checked, but not repaired.
Does not create . and .. files where necessary. Does not remove entirely empty directories. Should give more diagnostic messages. Undeleting files should use a more sophisticated algorithm.
