     fsck - filesystem consistency check and interactive repair

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

     The fsck command invokes filesystem-specific programs to check the spe-
     cial devices listed in the fstab(5) file or on 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 maxparallel.  By default,
             the limit is the number of disks, running one process per disk.
             If a smaller limit is given, the disks are checked round-robin,
             one filesystem at a time.

     -n      Cause fsck to assume ``no'' as the answer to all operator ques-
             tions, except ``CONTINUE?''.  This is assumed to be the default
             when dealing with filesystems currently mounted writeable.

     -p      Enter preen mode.

     -T fstype:fsoptions
             List of comma separated filesystem specific options for the spec-
             ified filesystem type, in the same format as mount(8).

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

     -v      Print the commands before executing them.

     -y      Cause fsck to assume ``yes'' as the answer to all operator ques-
