Subject Re: Corrupt index? Can I recover it?

It sounds like you should first run CheckIndex to see if there's
corruption if both indexes... and then run again with -fix to repair
the corruption.

That repair simply removes any segments with corruption.

So after that you'll have to re-index whatever docs are missing...
