File recovery freezes computer
I am running 8.5v2 Pro on Vista 64. My computer crashed while my database file was open (Thanks Vista!) and now when I try to open my file it starts by searching for unused blocks and then freezes and I have to restart. If I try to use the recover feature the same thing happens - frozen. My file is 16 gigs. I have a backup a couple of weeks old which works but I'd have to reenter and bunch of data - maybe 6 hours work. Any ideas?
