Summary

Database "damaged" error ONLY in Filemaker Go

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

fmgo 13 with fm server 12.5

Operating system version

OS 10.7.5

Description of the issue

My employees periodically get this error when logging in for the 1st time of the day. 
"file.fmp.12 is damaged and cannot be opened.  use the desktop product's Recover command to recover this file."
However, the file does not seem to be damaged in any way that I can see.  I can run the consistency check.. all good.. run recover... all good.. put file back up on the server and we'll still get this message. Unfortunately, it's intermittent.  I do suspect it has something to do with the issue of "record cannot be modified because it is already being modified in another window." but I am not sure.

Workaround

As with:  "record cannot be modified because it is already being modified in another window." I close FMGo and restart.  This seems to clear the error.
