Hey I have an external HD formatted to fat32.
There is a file that gets an I/O error when trying to copy from it. I managed to copy the file using ddrescue, but I want to try to repair the bad sectors.
Does anyone know of any chkdsk-like tools for fat32 besides dosfsck?

I think dosfsck is the tool. Take a look at man dosfsck.
