- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
If you are using the ntfs-3g driver and have the ntfsprogs package installed, then you have the fsck.ntfs utility installed (run with fsck usually) and it can scan for and fix ntfs file system problems, other than for encrypted volumes and/or directories. Not sure about compressed volumes and directories, however.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
