FIXSMB - Re-index Message Base

The Synchronet fixsmb utility can be used to repair specific types of message base corruption by re-creating the index (.sid) file and optionally, the hash (.hash) file. In the process, it can optionally re-number messages (use with caution!), undelete deleted messages, and even fix (change) duplicate message numbers.

Do not use this utility unless directed to and always back-up your data first.

usage: fixsmb [-renumber] [-undelete] [-fixnums] [-rehash] <smb_file> [[smb_file] [...]]


fixsmb /sbbs/data/mail


fixsmb /sbbs/data/subs/subsub
