Hangs Opening Large Database


I have FileMaker 7, 8 and 9 and the same problem happens in all three.

I am able to open all small databases, but just today I have not been able to open a large 100mg file in any of the FileMaker applications on this computer. The program just hangs and I have to force quit. Smaller database open fine in all three FileMaker apps. I am able to open the large FileMaker database on another computer so I know the database is fine.

I reinstalled FileMaker 7, but the same problem happens. The program just hangs and I have to force quit.

I have recovered the file, but it still hangs when trying to open it.

If you can come up with a solution real soon I would really appreciate it because the large database is what I run my business from.

Thank you - Sam Laundon
