- I know how to check the save file for errors - but how do i check the disk/filesystem? which the filesystem resides on?

Thanks for help,

Best regards,

Exit to prompt (control-alt-backspace)
Type "e2fsck -p /sda1" (or whatever the designation is of the disk that you want to check) don't type the quotes of course.

there are many many filesystems around, and puppy supports by default ext2,ext3,ext4,swap,fat,ntfs .

for many other you would need to get the appropriate fsck_fs binary like fsck.xfs from elsewhere (source and compile) .

for ntfs /usr/sbin/ntfsfix might be of interest .

one good binary to determine the filesystem is the /sbin/guess_fstype binary .

/usr/sbin/disktype is also interesting .

fdisk -l does only roughly determine the fs type .

Puppy 4 series had the /sbin/fsck wrapper binary incl. , Puppy 5 uses fsck as link to e2fsck .
