This tool attempts to repair a database that was marked as possibly corrupt by an incomplete write operation. This can occur if an application using the Microsoft Jet database engine is closed unexpectedly because of a power outage or computer hardware problem. The database won't be marked as possibly corrupt if you quit your application in a usual way.
After repairing a database, it's also a good idea to compact it using the Compact Database tool to defragment the file and to recover disk space.
