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, --do-nothing
              Do not write anything, just show what would have been done.

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