What do I do if my data is corrupt?


If you see a message that your Cashbook file might be corrupted, then follow these steps (in the order listed) until the problem is resolved:-

  • Download and reinstall the latest version of Cashbook Complete
  • Under some circumstances, Cashbook may detect problems with corruption automatically and attempt to repair itself.  If it doesn’t do this, try doing a “Repair & Compact” from the “File” menu (top left of the screen)
  • If Cashbook cannot automatically repair itself and/or if the “Repair & Compact” fails, then you’ll need to restore your data from a backup

Please refer to the “Restoring Data” section on the FAQ page.
