attaching files and database crashed. ran recovery on reopening and no data in database
attaching pdf and word files to records and file crashed. tried to recover two times and was not able to. Ran recovery and pulled up shell only. This was a database with 500 records, 500 photographs, and multiple documents per record that was 90% complete when I opened the file yesterday to finish attaching student records and the error occurred.
Thank you for your post.
The Recover command is not a cure-all. FileMaker Pro will try its best to piece the file back together and make it usable. It sounds like there was a lot more damage to the file than FileMaker could resolve. Therefore, revert to your last backup file and continue from that point.
