NTFSFIX(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    NTFSFIX(8)

NAME
       ntfsfix - fix common errors and force Windows to	check NTFS

SYNOPSIS
       ntfsfix [options] device

DESCRIPTION
       ntfsfix	is a utility that fixes	some common NTFS problems.  ntfsfix is
       NOT a Linux version of chkdsk.  It only repairs some  fundamental  NTFS
       inconsistencies,	 resets	 the  NTFS  journal file and schedules an NTFS
       consistency check for the first boot into Windows.

       You may run ntfsfix on an NTFS volume if	you think it  was  damaged  by
       Windows or some other way and it	cannot be mounted.

OPTIONS
       Below is	a summary of all the options that ntfsfix accepts.  Nearly all
       options have two	equivalent names.  The short name is preceded by - and
       the long	name is	preceded by --.	 Any single letter options, that don't
       take an argument, can be	combined into a	single command,	e.g.   -fv  is
       equivalent  to  -f  -v.	 Long  named options can be abbreviated	to any
       unique prefix of	their name.

       -b, --clear-bad-sectors
	      Clear the	list of	bad sectors. This is useful after  cloning  an
	      old disk with bad	sectors	to a new disk.

       -d, --clear-dirty
	      Clear  the  volume  dirty	 flag  if  the volume can be fixed and
	      mounted.	If the option is not present or	the volume  cannot  be
	      fixed, the dirty volume flag is set to request a volume checking
	      at next mount.

       -h, --help
	      Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.

       -n, --no-action
	      Do not write anything, just show what would have been done.

       -V, --version
	      Show the version number, copyright and license
