FILEMAKER 6 FILE QUESTION

We are converting from FMPro 6 to 8 and in the mean time we have to rely on the old system for searches. Over the last few months we have been getting an error message, probably every   , when we search an address field only using a portion of the whole address that states "Sorry, FileMaker is unable to read the disk this file on, Click continue to try again or click Quit" and then no matter which choice is selected it kicks you out of FMPro. Recently, it has gotten to the point where even if you put in the whole address that you are looking for it kicks you out with the message "Corrupt files". This process happens on a 1:3 basis....any direction we can take to correct this matter w/o extensive changes?

I found this:

It sounds like you have a corrupt record.  FileMaker doesn't even provide a service to fix corrupted files in this version anymore (just 7 and 8).
