         File System Consistency checK (Unix)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     1.  file system check.  The Unix program
     that checks a file system for internal consistency and bad
     blocks etc. and can repair some faults.
     fsck is often used after a crash when the file system has
     been left in an inconsistent state, e.g. due to incomplete
     flushing of buffers.
     2.  Used on Usenet newsgroup alt.sysadmin.recovery
     as substitute for "fuck" and became more main-stream after the
     Communications Decency Act.
