you can change it back with the following ... I haven't heard of it changing by itself before.
ALTER DATABASE SomeDB SET TORN_PAGE_DETECTION OFF

you can also do it through the GUI if you prefer,
Right click on the database --> Go to Properties --> Select Options
Go down to Recovery --> Page Verify        and select whichever you want

so there is nothing to be concerned about that option/setting?

what is the disadvantage if it is still operating in that mode?

there is a very small difference between torn page detection and checksum. The only one that I can really think of is that torn page detection does not detect corruption within sectors. Checksum uses a very very small amount more CPU, but the benefits are worth that little bit.

OK. Thanks.

ALTER DATABASE SomeDB SET TORN_PAGE_DETECTION OFF
puts the DB to 'NONE'. How would you bring it to CHECKSUM?
