public enum RepairOption


Member name Description
DeleteCorruptedRows Deletes all corrupted rows without attempting to fix them.
RecoverCorruptedRows NOTE: This field is now obsolete.

Attempts to fix all corrupted rows rather than deleting them.


When using the RepairOption's DeleteCorruptedRows value, all corrupted pages are discarded from the database. This may result in significant data loss, but the data that is recovered using this option will be free from corruption.

When using the RepairOption's RecoverCorruptedRows value, the database will attempt to read data from the corrupted pages. This potentially results in more data being recovered, but this option does not guarantee that the data recovered will be free of corruption.
