Checking Very Large Time Machine Volumes
Authored by: steresi on Sep 06, '11 10:35:24AM

Is there a practical difference between "fsck" and "fsck_hfs"? I use the former to check for discorruption whenever my machine locks up and I have to restart.

The 'fsck' command is just a proxy to a format specific command such as 'fsck_hfs'. There's no need to run both.
