-Here you see me invoke dfc with two full-stops (or periods) as the usual two inputs: the period simply means "​here",​ so I'm telling it to check files in my current directory and write the log file to that same current directory, too.

My current directory in this case happens to be my home/​Desktop folder. I could equally well have spelled out both directories,​ but happen not to have done so on this occasion.
  
 You can see that dfc is happy to run with that sort of input -but that it has spotted that my "​Rhapsody in Blue" file was checked for corruption less than 30 days ago. Therefore, it's shown as being '​Skipped Files: 1'. You can see that dfc is happy to run with that sort of input -but that it has spotted that my "​Rhapsody in Blue" file was checked for corruption less than 30 days ago.

 DFC runs as you'd hope -but this time, it's actually bothering to validate the Rhapsody in Blue file. Since it passes the check, the "​Validated Files: 1" indication comes up... note that "​Skipped Files" remains at zero. So, when you use --force-check as the third run-time parameter when invoking the DFC utility, the audio file will be re-validated,​ no matter when it was last validated. DFC runs as you'd hope -but this time, it's actually bothering to validate the Rhapsody in Blue file.
