    Hi @Marius Arbuzov ,

    Just did a research but couldn't found any official MS docs about these CorruptionTypes.
    I would think the CleanupOrphanedIndexes,CleanupFilesFolder,EmptyFilesFolder could be a additional task when repairing the mailboxes. And the CorruptedPerUserData and CorruptSearchFolderCriteria could be something to detect during the process.

    And yes you can use them with these four types
    But as the ProvisionedFolder,SearchFolder,AggregateCounts,Folderview has contained all corruption types, I think you could run the classic command first and then add them with -DetectOnly parameter.
