    fsck for FAT?


    Is there such a thing on Linux? I'm using Linux more and more at my work (which is dominated by Windows), and with luck may get rid of my Win box.

    As tech administrator, I get a lot of people asking me to fix floppies, usually with bad sectors.

    Is there a Linux equivalent for the Windows scandisk tool that works on DOS/Windows floppies?

    i think fsck has something for dos and fat formats. it's not the regular command, fsck, though. it's like fsck_dos or fsck.dos something. i can't seem to remember it. just check for the man pages or look for fsck.* in your /bin or /sbin dirs.. . it should be there.. .
