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:-
- Download and install the latest version of Cashbook
- 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.
