Database crashed


Recommended Posts


Attaching PDF files to individual records when error occurred. ~500 records with 1-13 attachments (PDF or Word, 1 small jpg photo per record). Was about 90% complete the day before and went to resume today when error occurred again and shut down program. Upon opening program again error: Improperly closed, checking for inconsistency. After this ran message unable to recover file. Chose the recover option and was given the shell of my database without the data.

Saved on a server. Checking to see if IT can recover the previous days backup of the file.

Don't use the recovered file.


Make sure the backup is created by FileMaker server and not by a backup program backing up the live file when it is open and running.
