fsck.f2fs is used to check an f2fs file system (usually in a disk partition). device is the special file corresponding to the device (e.g. /dev/sdXX).

The exit code returned by fsck.f2fs is 0 on success and -1 on failure.


-a enable auto fix

Enable to run file system check only if a bug was reported by the F2FS kernel module. It is disabled by default.

-f enable force fix
