Verify and repair the infobase
To start infobase verification and repair mode in Designer choose Administration - Verify and Repair.
This dialog is used to set the infobase verification mode and options.
Before starting infobase repair it is recommended that verification be performed. Choose a repair method based on the results of the verification.
All verification steps except infobase table compression are enabled by default. You can change these settings.
Since the results of the verify and repair operation cannot be undone, it is strongly recommended that a backup copy of the infobase be made before running this operation.
