Summary

Checking for consistency issue when opening files.

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

filemaker pro 11.2

Description of the issue

When we close our filemaker program and reopen the files we get a message "This file has been improperly closed, checking for consistency." This will take in some files an hour to reopen. Our filemaker file is 4.8g so we are dealing with a rather large file. Why does this continue to happen even when we exit the files properly? How do we resolve this issue?

do not expect the error message

Actual result

we continue to get the message "This file has been improperly closed, checking for consistency."
