YMMV, but...

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.
