I am running TMG V9.5 but for the last three days I have been encountering problems. The program runs intermittently in “Repair Mode”. When I try to backup my project from my main computer, I am told it is complete, but when I try to restore to my laptop, I am told there is nothing to restore. I can access, use and edit the data on my main computer but it does not look as if I can back it up successfully. I back it up to use on my portable laptop (it has the same version of TMG loaded). I have tried to load a previous version of my project, but get a message "_(name of my project)_____.pjc does not appear to be a valid file"; then I am told the project is in use elsewhere.
I have also been getting the following message: "error opening database" "error message = -1, could not open ____(name of project)______project (2$.DBF)"; this occurs when I try to produce certain reports (Descendant Box or Ancestor Box, chart reports seem to run fine). Therefore, I am unable to run these charts.
I have been on this forum and from what I read it looks as if I may have a corrupted program. The suggestion is to reload TMG; 1) I do not know how to find a copy to download and 2) I am concerned about reloading the program w/o a verifiable backup. I do not want to lose the data that I've been working on the past few days.
I've tried file validation and optimize with no changes. I've also de-fragged my computer and error checked the system. I also tried to re-load TMG 9.5 in the "Repair mode" I do want to reload the entire program until I hear that my data is safe. Finally, I only run one program at a time.
Help would be appreciated.
