FSCK(8)                 OpenBSD System Manager's Manual                FSCK(8)

     fsck - file system consistency check and interactive repair

     fsck [-dvplfyn] [-l maxparallel] [-t fstype] [-T fstype:fsoptions]
          special | node ...

     The fsck command invokes filesystem-specific programs to check the spe-
     cial devices listed in the fstab(5) file or in the command line for con-
     sistency.  The options are as follows:

     -d      Debugging mode. Just print the commands without executing them.
             Available only if fsck is compiled to support it.

     -f      Force checking of filesystems, even when they are marked clean
             (for filesystems that support this).

     -l maxparallel
             Limit the number of parallel checks to the number specified in
             the following argument. By default, the limit is the number of
             disks, running one process per disk. If a smaller limit is giv-
             en, the disks are checked round-robin, one filesystem at a time.

     -n      Causes fsck to assume no as the answer to all operator questions,
             except "CONTINUE?".

     -p      Enter preen mode.

     -t fstype
             Invoke fsck only in the comma separated list of filesystem types.
             If the list starts with no then invoke fsck the filesystem types
             that are not specified in the list.

     -v      Print the commands before executing them.

     -y      Causes fsck to assume yes as the answer to all operator ques-

     -T fstype:fsoptions
             List of comma separated file system specific options for the
             specified file system type, in the same format as mount(8)

     /etc/fstab  file system table

     mount(8),  fstab(5),  fsck_msdos(8),  fsck_ffs(8)
