       It can be run at any time to correct errors, to	add  support  for  new
       policy,	or  with the -n option it can just check whether the file con
       texts are all as you expect.

	      save list of files with incorrect context in outfilename.

       -v     show changes in file labels.

       -vv    show changes in file labels, if type, role, or user  are	chang

       -F     Force  reset  of	context to match file_context for customizable
