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
