mfschunktool - checks chunk integrity offline


mfschunktool [-f] [-r] [-n] [-e] [-x] chunk_file ...


mfschunktool checks chunk integrity using stored CRC checksums in chunk's header. It can also 'repair' chunk (fix stored checksums). This tool may be useful to check last written chunks after possible data corruption (power down etc.)


turn on fast mode (in this mode only last block is tested - usually this is enough to find corrupted chunks)
turn on repair mode (if checksums on given chunk don't match then they will be overwritten by checksums calculated using actual data)
turn on name fixing mode (if the chunk file name is not correct but there is proper file header, the tool will rename given file using data stored in the header)
turn on empty block crc check for 1.0 version chunks (force checking crc values for non existing blocks - may fail in case of chunks that were truncated)
turn on reporting successful check (print 'OK' message when everything is correct)
