What does the /Check switch do with the ImageX command?

ImageX allows us to work with images.  We can use ImageX to capture and apply them.  We can also mount the images for servicing. The /check switch will check the integrity of the .wim file when the command is executed. The /check switch is available to be used with the following ImageX operations:
  • /append
  • /apply
  • /capture
  • /delete
  • /export
  • /info
  • /mountrw
  • /split

That doesn't tell us much. One can read that on Microsoft's web site and still not understand what the use is. Tell us this please: how does /check differ from /verify, and when would you use one or the other? Thanks,

Chad,

The /Verify option is used during a capture or apply. It will verify the contents of the collected or deployed image matches the contents of the source.

The /Check option is used to check for corruption of a WIM file.

You can read about these two options and the ImageX commands that they are valid for on TechNet:
