My database is corrupted..  all backups are corrupted for two months...  help!

Post

Database is 160mb.  Has about 20 tables..  largest table is about 10000 records.

When I do a relookup update, the system has been saying that 8 files can't be updated.  Those files are "?" (literally ? in the fields.. all fields).   They cannot be deleted.   I tried exporting all data and re-importing to no avail.

Then tried the recover command..  "Says sorry file is corrupted and don't use.."

Then tried saving as a smaller file...    Same problem upon relookup update.

Then tried saving as a clone...  And tried recovering the clone.   Same result..  "don't use"

 

Any ideas?  Runs my whole business, people are relying on me.   I'd even pay someone to help me understand how to fix the issues.

Perhaps there is a way to verify which layout, or files are corrupted?  I looked at the log file.  Ha ha ha..  written by a scientist I think.

 

Thanks SO much for the help.

Todd
