To run a Sanitizer check on Windows, open the command prompt (Start Menu > Enter “cmd” and press enter) and enter the following command:
java -jar C:\path\to\sanitizer-0.16.jar check -vault C:\path\to\vault -deep
Replace the paths
You can open an Explorer window and drag & drop the JAR file and vault directory into the command prompt to insert the correct path.
This video shows how to do that on macOS.
After running Sanitizer, the files
*.check.txt are created.
Those files contain some information about your vault (a list of the (encrypted) files and a problems report).
If you’re looking for a way to restore missing file extensions after using the
decryptVault command, please read this guide:
This article is only for a worst-case scenario when the vault has been partially deleted.
Use at your own risk!
Do not run these scripts if you don’t know exactly what you are doing.
