Some years ago, I bought some licences for CS (maybe 20-30?), and then
"stressed tested" it (I know, wrong sequence!).
It managed to corrupt good tables/indices - especially moderately large
tables, so I never got to checking if it could repair damaged ones!
I had dozens of emails with Mike - but we made no progress.
