Description

This can correct data mismatches that may have been caused by previous ghost operations or brz upgrades. You should only need to run this command if ‘brz check’ or a brz developer advises you to run it.

If a second branch is provided, cross-branch reconciliation is also attempted, which will check that data like the tree root id which was not present in very early brz versions is represented correctly in both branches.

At the same time it is run it may recompress data resulting in a potential saving in disk space or performance gain.

The branch MUST be on a listable system such as local disk or sftp.
