To check that files are saved to disk correctly; the system can re-read the

Verify simply checks that the
destination file, once written, can be read. No comparison with the source the
files occurs.

Copying files with verify OFF can be significantly faster, up to twice as

VERIFY without a parameter will display the current setting.
