Corrupt File

I have a file that is corrupt in Paradox 8.  It has 241 records in it, I looked at it in word.  When I click on the corrupt Paradox file, it opens Paradox, but none of the selections open the file.  I can put the file on a Windows XP Professional or Windows NT 4.0 server to try the recovery.

Is there anyway to fix it?  

TIA,

Jess

RAVI:

I ran the ParadoxRecovery software. It said it fixed .db files.  the file I ran it on on was a .FSL file.  I got the following Message after running the program:

"Internal shell Error.  contact the software developers.  Code=0xC00000005, Address=0x10005889"

any ideas what may be wrong or if this error message is correct?

TIA,

Jess

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

try and import the data into access db file, possibly access will be able to read the file, if successful then yoc export it back to paradox format
