I have an application running on btrieve, cant tell what version, but the software maker suggest using file repair utility dated back 1992-1994 so I assume its an old version of the DOS database.
Recently a few of the files became badly corrupted, by the time they noticed the corruption, the backup tapes already rotated to beyond the time when its fully working.
I tried running LB.BAT to repair the files, but there are 4 or 5 files always error 2, the software people (Tas Software) said they would take upto 2-3 weeks to repair it, they must be kidding as how many companies you know can afford not able to run their accounts for that long.. I know one would say its the customers responisble to make sure backups are working, but I think we gone passed that point.
Anyone know any good reliable online repair service that could deal with btrieve ? The worry is that because TasSoftware uses almost 100 files, just by repairing the headers of these 4-5 damaged files may cause problems linking to the system as a whole, is there any way to safeguard such operation ? The other route I am looking at is to extract the data and import them into another account package...
Thank you for your help
