I'm running TMG 8.08 US on Windows 10. While re-indexing my project database, Windows crashed. Upon restart, in TMG I got repeated errors when trying to open my main project. Eventually, when restarting TMG, it said it was in repair mode. I was able to successfully open the sample project, but when I try to open my main project, it starts creating indexes, I still get many errors, I click ignore many times, TMG wants to open a dbf file, and eventually it tells me the project is in use elsewhere.

 

I believe my project data is intact, but something is corrupt. Can you help?

 

Thank you,

Jim

You need to send me the project and I'll check it and repair it if possible.

 

Make a copy of the project folder with the 48 files that comprise the project.

1 .PJC file

29 .DBF files

18 .FPT files

 

All that I need are those 48 files.

 

Make a .ZIP file of the folder with those 48 files and send it to me. If the ZIP file is too large, you'll need to post the file on a server so that I can download it.

 

You can contact me by email by clicking on the mail link below.

Thanks to Jim Byram for his knowledge, his kindness and his willingness to help. Through his work, I've recovered my project and learned a valuable lesson about frequent backups.

 

Thank you, Jim
