Hmm... Ol' Dog + New Tricks


Recommended Posts

For years, when my Common partition (shared between Win/Lin) was buggered up somehow, I would have to boot into Windows to let the Check Disk fix it. Today, I learned that you can actually check VFAT partitions from within Linux using dosfsck from the command line. COOL, huh?

Well, I would have been surprised if you hadn't at least heard of it. :)
