GIT-LFS-FSCK(1) General Commands Manual GIT-LFS-FSCK(1)

NAME

git-lfs-fsck - Check GIT LFS files for consistency

SYNOPSIS

git lfs fsck [options] [revisions]

DESCRIPTION

Checks all Git LFS files in the current HEAD for consistency.

Corrupted files are moved to ".git/lfs/bad".

The revisions may be specified as either a single committish, in which case only that commit is inspected; specified as a range of the form A..B (and only this form), in which case that range is inspected; or omitted entirely, in which case HEAD (and, for --objects, the index) is examined.

The default is to perform all checks.

In your Git configuration or in a .lfsconfig file, you may set lfs.fetchexclude to a comma-separated list of paths. If lfs.fetchexclude is defined, then any Git LFS files whose paths match one in that list will not be checked for consistency. Paths are matched using wildcard matching as per gitignore(5).

OPTIONS

Check that each object in HEAD matches its expected hash and that each object exists on disk.
Check that each pointer is canonical and that each file which should be stored as a Git LFS file is so stored.
