  fsck
  
     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.
