Why not use the Recovered file

I just want some reasons why not to use my recovered file after I processed it and the Dialog told me not to use it because of 2 error/warnings.


The reason why I wanted to recover the file was because I couldn't see the value lists anymore  and  an hour later FileMaker crashed when I was working on a new TO. I took the file through the recovery process and there where  2 errors reported 8476 on two TO's. In the original file I tried to rename one and delete the other. But somehow the deleted TO returns and the error stayed for the other which I renamed.

When I tried the same in the recovered File the Valuelists are back and I can change and delete the corrupt TO's. When I re-run the recovery process on the recovered file no errors are there anymore.


I read that the recovery process makes a copy of the original file so why not use this one if it solved my problems?
