For the second time in two days, I'm getting this same error whenever check file runs; if I run check/fix, it will say it is fixed, but if I run check file again right after, the problem will continue. The only way I can get rid of the error is to run a GEDCOM, and I'm afraid that I'm going to lose a lot of work doing that. Does anyone have ANY idea of what is causing the problem? Could it be I have too many people, too many notes, or what have you? Both times (yesterday and today), I was working on the same family, and I had cut and pasted info from one person to another. Could that affect the outcome?
Checking Individual Names: 39939 records. Record pointer 55308226 is not the first free.
I am not sure what the record pointer is - does it have anything to do with the notes themselves, or is it people?
thanks. I try to keep my file backed up two or three times a day, and this happened today after I had edited about 10 people.
