Description

The Repair-FileIntegrity cmdlet repairs a corrupted file on an NTFS file system volume or a Resilient File System (ReFS) volume. For the cmdlet to repair a file, the file must be on a storage volume that provides redundancy, and the file must have integrity turned on. This cmdlet does not repair corrupted file metadata.

Examples

Example 1: Repair a file

PS C:\>Repair-FileIntegrity -FileName 'H:\Temp\Text Document.txt'

This command repairs a file. Because the repair proceeds without error, the cmdlet does not display any message.

Example 2: Attempt to repair a file that cannot be repaired

PS C:\>Repair-FileIntegrity -FileName 'J:\Temp\Text Document.txt'
Repair-FileIntegrity : The storage device does not provide redundancy.

This command attempts to repair a file. In this example, the cmdlet cannot repair the file and therefore displays an explanation.

Specifies a file name. The cmdlet attempts to repair the file that you specify.
