Recover question



          I have a small issue that's been nagging at me for a while. One file in a multi file solution fails Recover. The file functions perfectly. Some years ago when running Recover I started noticing a pattern. FM would attempt to recover Table " " then create a new table "Recover". It also created a field "Recover" in two tables. If I open the Recovered file and delete these three items, then run Recover on the copy the file gets a clean bill of health. Even my oldest backups of this file (when it was tiny) show the same problems so I don't have a clean backup. 

          I've never used a Recovered file. Now I'm trying to decide whether to just leave good enough alone and continue with the original file, or trust the clean bill of health of the "Recovered Recovered" file. Any thoughts would be most welcome.
