How do I prevent my data file from becoming corrupted?

 In

The most common causes of corruption are:-

  • Faulty networking hardware (if sharing your file over a network)
  • Power cuts, surges or failures
  • Not exiting Cashbook when it’s not in use

The best ways to prevent corruption are to:-

  • Connect the PC to a UPS (Un-interruptible Power Supply)
  • Exit the software when you aren’t using it
  • Do a “Repair & Compact” (from the “File” menu) at least once a month (or more frequently if used daily)
  • Keep your software as up-to-date as possible.  You can download the latest version here
