I have opened a new database in Parsons Technology-Family Origins. The 27 new files appeared together with the other, large database I have. I have never deleted a database before and was afraid to use the "file" command, fearing that the main database may also be effected. I have therefore highlighted all the new database files and deleted them ftom the folder. The software immediately has replacedthese files by creating several copies. I then reinstated the deleted files from the Dustbin. The copied files remained. I then deleted the database with the file command, the original files got deleted but all the many copies remain. Please help how to get rid of these files without loosing my large database. (I have backed it up in a separate folder which cotains only the ...fob file) Thank you.
