       ntfsfix device


       This manual page documents briefly the ntfsfix command.

       ntfsfix is a program that fixes NTFS partitions altered in
       any  manner  with  the Linux NTFS driver. ntfsfix is NOT a
       Linux version of chkdsk. It only tries to leave  the  NTFS
       partition  in  a  not-so-inconsistent state after the NTFS
       driver has written to it.

       ntfsfix appeared because MS chkdsk is well known  for  its
       stupidity when fixing altered partitions. Because the main
       problems are journal files,  ntfsfix  aims  to  fix  those

       Running  ntfsfix after mounting NTFS partitions read-write
       is recommended for reducing the chance of severe data loss
       when NT/W2K tries to remount the affected partition(s).

       In  order  to use ntfsfix you must unmount the NTFS parti­
       tion, and run ntfsfix device, where  device  is  the  NTFS
       partition.  After this, you can safely reboot into NT/W2K.
       Please note that ntfsfix is not a chkdsk-like tool, and so
       is  not  guaranteed  that it could fix all the alterations
       provoked by the NTFS driver.


       This manual page was  written  by  David  Martínez  Moreno
       <david.martinez@rediris.es>, for the Debian GNU/Linux sys­
       tem (but may be used by others).


       ntfsfix is part of the linux-ntfs package and is available
       from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/.
