Is corruption the correct word here, or would it be more accurate to
say "inconsistent"? I suppose it is a point of view.

It is just that to me corruption means the data in my files is
unusable, which is slightly different than the data is "good" on both
copies, they just are not the SAME. I could still at least pick one to
use, whereas corruption to means I have no good data.

Unimportant maybe but corruption might freak people out a little more
