My client has an Apple Mac and today has encountered the message below when starting Entourage.
He does not have a backup of his entourage data (emails /contacts) and is very concered.
Before just clicking the repair option advised I wanted to get the best advice I could regaring the error.
Also what precautions should I take before attempting repair? Can I take my opwn backup of the data file and if so where is it located?
