Summary

Go 13.0.2 Reporting Corrupt files however recovering finds no corruption

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

13.0.2

Operating system version

Description of the issue

Several times now various files on Go 13 have become corrupt. I transfer the file to my computer and open in FileMaker Advanced 13, it also sees it as corrupt. After recovering the file it says it found no issues and am then able to open the file. So is not really corrupt?

Normal database use in FileMaker Go, varies (can't consistently do it).

Expected result

Doesn't corrupt file.

Actual result

Corrupts files (even though it really isn't corrupt)

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

After attempting to open in FileMaker Advanced it creates recover log:
