ntfsfix - fix common errors and force Windows to check NTFS


   ntfsfix [options] device


   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.


   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
