Since you are using Open Remote to connect to the databases, you have either Filemaker Pro or Filemaker Server installed on this machine. (Unless someone is using Filemaker Pro to open and Host this machine by accessing the file through a shared directory which is a very bad idea.)
Which do you have installed on it?
Can you open the file with a full access password so that you can modify the design of this database?
If so, you could define a calculation field with Get ( FilePath ) and then place this field on a layout to see exactly where the file is and what it is named. Also, the default window name for a filemaker file is the same as it's filename unless the developer has specifically taken steps to give it a different name so you should be able to do a file search for that name to find the file.
Hi, thanks for your help Phil. I just found where all the files are and have set up my daily backups. Someone had moved all the filemaker folders somehwere strange after one of our drives crashed last year. All is well and thank you for your help.
Daily backups that are done with the databases open may become corrupted.
If the backups are defined in Filemaker Server, this will work.
If the backups are done by an external utility, this may not work.
They are defined in the Filemaker Server. Thanks for the tip though.
