Why does FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.v3 say a file is good and Pro Advanced 12.v5 say there are issues with the same file?

 

Here is the reason I'm asking the question: One of my clients had their FMS server reboot last night. So I took a copy of the active databases and ran recover on the copies. Three of the files came up with issues. So I started going to earlier backups of the files and the corruption was still there.

 

This morning I went back to my old Notebook that was used to convert these files from .tp7 to .fmp12. This notebook doesn't have 13 and is still on FileMaker Pro Advanced 12v3. I made copies of the converted files and ran recover on them using 12v3 and they came up clean. I made a new set of copies and moved these to my current system with Pro Advanced 12.v5 and 13 v4. I ran recover on the files with these versions and it found problems.

 

Thanks

Bruce
