      How do I use/get to recover command in filemaker pro?

      Post

      Hi-

       

      I was working in a program called Apparel Magic whne I lost connectivity to my server. When I rebooted a received an error message saying file is damaged and cannot be opened, use recovery command to recover tgis file. Can anyone tell me how to go about this?

       

      Thanks

          1. Take the file down off the server
          2. launch filemaker pro, but do not open the file
          3. Choose recover from the file menu
          4. select your file and recover it.

          Better yet, replace the file with a back up. There is no guarantee that recovering a file will fix everything correctly so it is safer to replace than recover. If you have recent data in your damaged file, recover the file but then import the records into an undamaged back up file.
