db integrity check does not delete files, it only removes format entries from the database if the file in the corresponding format was not found in the library. Similarly it updates the has_cover column in the database if the cover was not found in the library.

The main function of db integrity check is to check the integrity of the actual metadata.db file and recover from simple errors. It does this by dumping the file to SQL and re-creating it.
