Problem Description
Title: WIN-D2D DATA INTEGRITY CHECK TOOL
Description:
                      D2D  backed-up  Data  corruption  may  happen   for
  various reasons. To help user find out data
  corruption, AFUtil.exe utility is created.
 
  AFUtil.exe utility is used to scan a CA ARCserve
  D2D backup session to confirm the integrity of the
  backed-up data.
 
  If you have determined that the existing recovery
  points in your environment have been affected (with
  data corruption) and no good full backup exists
  after these corrupted recovery points, you must run
  a Full Backup to restart the recovery point chain
  or configure a recovery set to run full backup
  regularly.
 
  This utility should be placed in the "Bin" folder
  for the CA ARCserve D2D installation prior to using
  it.
 
  When this utility is executed without any
  parameters, by default it will determine the
  configured backup destination and scan the oldest
  Full Backup session of all the machines that are
  protected by CA ARCserve D2D. However, it is
  strongly recommended to scan all backup images to
  ensure that data from these recovery points are
  restorable.
 
  Because this utility performs a complete scan of
  your backed-up data for the selected recovery
  point, this can be a time-consuming process. The
  utility cannot run if other jobs are running at the
  same time. Verify that the CA ARCserve D2D Web
  Service is stopped and that there are no active
  jobs running.
 
 
  [Usage]
 
  AFUtil [<-|/> [parameters]] Note:
  To ensure each and every image is scanned, use the
  /sid switch as described in the second example. You
  will have to run the utility one time for every
  session.
 
  [Examples]
 
  Run the following command to scan the oldest base
  session: AFUtil
 
  Run the following command to scan the 5th backup
  session: AFUtil.exe /AFStor /dest
  /un /upwd
  /sid 5
 
  Run the following command to scan the oldest Full
  backup for all of the VMs connected to the backup
  proxy system for the Host-Based VM Backup server:
  AFUtil.exe /AFStor /vm
