fsck.vfat
« on: March 30, 2016, 07:56:22 PM »
I am trying to clear up a usb flash drive that gives me the message:
Code: [Select]
[  539.258985] FAT-fs (sda1): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.
I am getting stuck running
Code: [Select]
$ fsck /dev/sda1
fsck (busybox 1.24.1, 2015-10-24 10:25:55 UTC)
fsck: fsck.vfat: No such file or directory
I looked but cannot seem to find how/where to get the proper fsck.vfat.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.
