Most of the documentation is a snapshot of the old Namesys site (archive.org, 2007-09-29).

There was also a Reiser4 Wiki (archive.org, 2007-07-06) once on pub.namesys.com.

Reiser4 development appears to have stalled and ReiserFS is deprecated and scheduled to be removed from mainline Linux in 2025.

NAME

fsck.reiser4 - the program for checking and repairing reiser4 filesystem


SYNOPSIS

      fsck.reiser4 [ options ] FILE


DESCRIPTION

fsck.reiser4 is reiser4 filesystem check and repair program.


CHECK OPTIONS

      --check
             the default action checks the consistency and reports, but  does
             not  repair  any  corruption  that it finds.  This option may be
             used on a read-only file system mount.
      --fix  fixes minor corruptions that do not require rebuilding; sets  up
             correct  values  of  bytes  unsupported by kernel in the case of
             transparent compression.
      --build-sb
             fixes all severe corruptions in  super  blocks,  rebuilds  super
             blocks from scratch if needed.
      --build-fs
             fixes  all  severe  fs  corruptions,  except  super  block ones;
             rebuilds reiser4 filesystem from the scratch if needed.
      -L, --logfile
             forces fsck to report any corruption it finds to  the  specified
             logfile rather then on stderr.
      -n, --no-log
             prevents fsck from reporting any kind of corruption.
      -a, --auto
             automatically checks the file system without any questions.
      -q, --quiet
             supresses gauges.
      -r     ignored.


PLUGIN OPTIONS

      --print-profile
             prints  the  plugin  profile. This is the set of default plugins
             used for all parts of a  filesystem  --  format,  nodes,  files,
             directories,  hashes,  etc.  If  --override  is  specified, then
             prints modified plugins.
      -l, --print-plugins
             prints all plugins libreiser4 know about.
      -o, --override TYPE=PLUGIN, ...
             overrides the default plugin of the type "TYPE"  by  the  plugin
             "PLUGIN" in the plugin profile.


COMMON OPTIONS

      -V, --version
             prints program version
      -?, -h, --help
             prints program help
      -q, --quiet
             suppress messages.
      -y, --yes
             assumes an answer ’yes’ to all questions.
      -f, --force
             forces  fsck  to  use  whole  disk,  not block device or mounted
             partition.
      -p, --preen
             automatically repair minor corruptions on the filesystem.
      -c, --cache N
             tunes number of nodes in the libreiser4 tree buffer cache
