      Database closed improperly and is locked

      Post

      We are running FM5 on a MAC and it is giving the error of "Database was closed improperly and is locked."

          Try running a recover on the file and see what you get.

          Things to keep in mind about Recover:

          1. Recover does not detect all problems
          2. Recover doesn't always fix all problems correctly
          3. Best Practice is to never put a recovered copy back into regular use or development. Instead, replace the damaged file with an undamaged back up copy if this is at all possible. You may have to save a clone of the back up copy and import all data from your recovered copy to get a working copy with the most up to date information possible.
