10.3: Force a file system check in single user mode
Authored by: PapaJosh on Oct 30, '03 11:53:04AM

The reason you can't run fsck is because journaled file systems don't need file system checks. Since every file system operation is "journaled", the system will always know what operation was taking place with a system failure occured. It can then go back and finish the operation or reverse the operation.
