    Question Looking for Check Disc for Ubuntu

    Hi all,
    I believe I have a rotten USB or at least some of it may be bad. I would like to find an alternative to 'check disk' for Linux.

    Is there some way to check the integrity of my usb sector by sector.
    Cheers

    If it's ntfs, I think it'd be better to find a windows pc.
    If it's an ext filesystem, use fsck.

    USB sticks come preformatted with Windows filesystems on them. Unfortunately, there is no "CHKDK in Linux that you can use to check those filesystems. You need to plug them into an MS Windows PC and check them there.
    Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
