Repair the backup
Running a repair action will first test all versions of the selected backup job. The missing files from destination will be deleted from the backup catalog and they will be backed up again.

Repair only the catalog
If you choose to repair only the catalog, the backup will be tested against the destination files and the missing files will have their versions deleted from the backup catalog, without running the backup. Those files will be included in the next backup, if they are still in backup sources.

Quick repair and Quick repair catalog only options will perform a quick test instead of a normal one. That means the application will only test if the files in destination exists or not.
