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

     fsck_msdos - DOS/Windows (FAT) filesystem consistency checker

     fsck_msdos -p [-f] filesystem ...
     fsck_msdos [-fny] filesystem ...

     The fsck_msdos utility verifies and repairs FAT filesystems (more common-
     ly known as DOS filesystems).

     The first form of fsck_msdos preens the specified filesystems.  It is
     normally started by fsck(8) run from /etc/rc during automatic reboot,
     when a FAT filesystem is detected.  When preening file systems, fsck_ms-
     dos 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 second form of fsck_msdos checks the specified file systems and tries
     to repair all detected inconsistencies, requesting confirmation before
     making any changes.

     The options are as follows:

           -f      This option is ignored by fsck_msdos, and is present only
                   for compatibility with programs that check other file sys-
                   tem types for consistency, such as fsck_ffs(8).

           -n      Causes fsck_msdos to assume no as the answer to all opera-
                   tor questions, except ``CONTINUE?''.

           -p      Preen the specified filesystems.

           -y      Causes fsck_msdos to assume yes as the answer to all opera-
                   tor questions.

     fsck(8),  fsck_ffs(8),  mount_msdos(8)

     Fsck_msdos is still under construction.
