We recommend that you run the Check Links process after the Rebuild process is complete.

The Check Links process makes sure that the appropriate records or links exist in a logical file group. If they do not exist in a logical file group, the process adds them.
When you run the Check Links process, one of the physical files in the logical file group is designated as the main file. The data in this main file is used to update the other related physical files within the logical file group. The Check Links process runs as a background task.
