Corrupt database on V. 2.1 FileMaker
I have a database created by someone else that I've been using for several years. My computer crashed while using it and now when I try to bring it up, it says "<FILENAME> is damaged and cannot be opened. Use the Recover command to recover".
I have tried the "CNTRL-SHIFT-OPEN" trick but that doesn't work. I can't recover because I do not have the FileMaker application files to bring up and perform a recover (at least I can't find any - I didn't purchase the application software, just the completed database software.
Can anyone help me? I know the obvious answer is use a backup, but my last backup is several hundred records shorter. Please, anybody?
