Verify a WIM archive


wimverify WIMFILE [OPTION...]


wimverify (or equivalently wimlib-imagex verify) checks the validity and integrity of the specified WIM archive.

Specifically, this command performs the following verifications on the WIM:



File glob of additional WIMs or split WIM parts to reference resources from. This option can be specified multiple times.  Note: GLOB is listed in quotes because it is interpreted by wimverify and may need to be quoted to protect against shell expansion.


Do not verify the WIM's integrity using the extra integrity information (the integrity table).


wimverify is a read-only operation; it does not modify the WIM file.

Even if the WIM does not contain extra integrity information (e.g. generated with the --check option to wimcapture), wimverify may still be quite useful because all file data is still checksummed.

In the future, wimverify might do more thorough verifications than it does now.


Verify the WIM file 'boot.wim':

wimverify boot.wim

Verify the split WIM file consisting of 'boot.swm', 'boot2.swm', 'boot3.swm', ...:

wimverify boot.swm --ref="boot*.swm"
