Use the New-PublicFolderDatabaseRepairRequest cmdlet to detect and fix replication issues in a public folder database. While the request is running, only access to the public folder being repaired is disrupted. All other public folders are available.

After you start the repair request, you can't stop it unless you dismount the database. For more information, see Dismount a Database.
