I don't know low-level details, so I don't know if the data is scrubbed regularly. I also don't know the procedures that occur when a drive fails and needs to be replaced.

Currently, looking at the files.xml file for a random item, the system does sha1, md5, and crc32. It also stores the file size and mtime.
