The UNIX equivalent is fsck.  But you can not run that on a mounted volume (just like you can't do it on the C:\ drive).   So boot another device and do it from there.

if you just do a warm reboot from prompt and let sys. ans.all questions doesn't it auto do the fsck?

I do not know.  It's been over 20 years since I used SCO UNIX.

you can use single user mode to check the filesystem.
At time it auto checks depending on your fstab setting i.e. after X number of days fsck is run automatically at boot.

a warm boot does do an automatic fsck. just type reboot at prompt when system is up and it will reboot w/o doing an orderly shutdown thus invoking a fsck on the way back up provided user does not answer ANY questions on the way back up..just let system time out and it will auto answer ALL questions including the fsck fix...
