The fsck command is used to check and repair Linux filesystem errors. This command can be applied to filesystems that are currently unmounted or in an unclean state to inspect them or rectify inconsistencies that are found during the scan. It is often used during system boot time or maintenance mode. Other tools like mkfs are used to create filesystems, not check or repair them, and dd is a command used for copying and converting data.
