      Your post

           Hi,

           I've a file that's provoque e 8003:2 Unexpected error in the logs. Bases on the time, it appears during progressive backup.

           Can't be interrupted, 8003:2 Unexpected error, event 784 classified as an error.

            

           Apparently that appears as a 8003 messages appears, can't do backup because of an error. But what causes this error ? 

            

           What's this. The file appears to be not corrupted.

          I recently had a simialr issue.

           

          I suspected I knew the root cause because, when I was adding a new ExecuteSQL calculation field to a table; FMP didn't exactly crash on me, but it was taking too long to update the database. I took the decision to force quit FMP (probably not the best idea). I couldn't edit the layouts, or database manager after opening it again, because it said I was already modifying that layout. After disconnecting my user from the clients list in FMS using the admin console (which didn't fix the issue), I had to close the database from FMS — after reopening everything was back to normal (I then deleted my calculation field that caused the hang).

           

          It was because, I assume, FM locks the database while it updates any changes you've made, and it unlocks it when it finishes; however, in this case, it never had a chance to finish because I force quit the application before it had a chance to unlock the DB.
