It is my understanding that the systemd journal cannot repair or fix errors revealed by:
Here's an example of an error I just saw. I routinely see errors like this on all the devices I manage.
FAIL: /email@example.com~ (Bad message) 391de0: Invalid entry item (30/31 offset: 000000 391de0: Invalid object contents: Bad message File corruption detected at /firstname.lastname@example.org~:391de0 (of 8388608 bytes, 44%).

If true, is there a tool or script that will simply do this automatically? The device I just checked had 5 such files I had to delete. I like to run my maintenance in an automated script, but with this being such a common issue, I do not want to reinvent the wheel. So what are others doing? Surely someone has already automated this. If not, my first thought is along these lines:
journalctl --verify | grep 'File corruption detected at ' | ??? | xargs rm
However, that does not work (even before getting to the step with "???").
