       xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS


       xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ... [ -f ] [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] device


       xfs_ncheck  with no -i arguments generates an inode number and pathname
       list of all files on the given filesystem. Names of directory files are
       followed by /..  The output is not sorted in any particular order.  The
       filesystem to be examined is specified by the  device  argument,  which
       should  be  the  disk or volume device for the filesystem.  Filesystems
       stored in files can also be checked, using the -f flag.


       -f       Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is  stored
                in a regular file at device (see the mkfs.xfs -d file option).
                This might happen if an image copy of a  filesystem  has  been
                made into an ordinary file.

       -l logdev
                Specifies  the  device  where  the  filesystem’s  external log
                resides.  Only for those filesystems  which  use  an  external
                log.  See  the  mkfs.xfs  -l option, and refer to xfs(5) for a
                detailed description of the XFS log.

       -s       Limits the report to special files and  files  with  setuserid
                mode.   This  option  may  be  used  to  detect  violations of
                security policy.

       -i ino   Limits the report to only  those  files  whose  inode  numbers
                follow.   May be given multiple times to select multiple inode

       If the filesystem is seriously corrupted, or very busy and  looks  like
       it  is  corrupt,  a  message  of  the  form  that would be generated by
       xfs_check(8) may appear.

       xfs_ncheck is only useful with XFS filesystems.
