Recover and Reindex

Recover and Reindex


FileMaker Pro


11 v3

Operating system version

Windows XP SP3

Description of the issue

When running Recover with Advanced Settings, and choosing to Copy Blocks as They Are, and also choosing Reindex Only (now), results in Recover marking the file as having been recovered, even though it's only been reindexed. The problem with this is that, I hear, FM Support tends to not help out when problems are reported with a file that is found to have been recovered.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Run Recover.
Load an FM file.
Choose "Copy file blocks as is."
Choose "Rebuild field indexes."
Choose "Now."
Run the Recover process.
Test the resulting file with FMDiff.

Expected result

The file shouldn't be marked as recovered because it was only reindexed.

Actual result

FMDiff reports that file has been recovered.
