My box is scientific linux 6.1 x86, and I want to check filesystem's health.

Can I execute "fsck" at command line?

And please let me know gui tool for checking filesystem.

Thanks in advance.

hi yellowhat,

You can run fsck from the command line (see "man fsck") but it is very important not to run a fsck on a mounted filesystem as this will corrupt the data . I suggest you boot a livecd to run fsck from.

For a GUI tool, there is palimpsest the disk-utility program. You can not run this tool on a mounted filesystem but it works well from a livecd.

Hope this helps,
