The “Repair & Compact” fails

 In

When the Repair & Compact process fails (or produces errors), then that indicates that your file has become corrupt.  Here’s what you should do in that situation:-

  1. Download and install the latest version of Cashbook
  2. When you start Cashbook, it will attempt to self-repair when it detects that your file is corrupted

If you’re already using the latest version and Cashbook cannot ‘self-repair’, then the corruption may be quite severe.  If that’s the case, then you’ll need to replace your corrupt data file with a backup by clicking on the “File” menu and choosing “Restore from Backup”.  After restoring a backup, you should be able to use the software as normal again.
