I ran the check/repair on a very large file (had never run it before) and it came up with 97 errors.I printed off the page with the report,and most of them say "fixed".
However, at the bottom it said this:
The file contains errors. We recommend that you restore the file from a clean backup if you have one. Otherwise, Personal Ancestral File can try to fix some problems but a loss of data is possible. If the repaired file is still unsatisfactory, restore the file from a clean backup.
When I ran Check/Repair a second time, it asked me if I wanted to replace the existing file that had been checked..I said yes...and got the same report but nowroughly 100 errors, and again, a list that said they were fixed.
I am currently playing with a back up copy, but I would like to know why I had so many errors, and why they increased when I ran it a second time.When I just ran 'check' I got over 600 errors.I don't want to continue until I understand more about Check/Repair and I don't want to lose my data.
I obviously don't have a clean back up copy since I had so many errors in the back up I am working on.Hope somebody can steer me to some answers so I don't mess up my files.I have had no error messages and everything looks good. Pat
