Cannot open a QDF file more than once, Quicken hangs on open
Posted on 2008-01-30
I have a Quicken Deluxe 2002 QDF database, I can only open the file once and then Quicken hangs on the open. It seems to have gotten worse and as days go on. Let me explain, i have restored from backups about a week ago and i can open those about 5-7 times, and the more recent backups i pull (Backup Exec 11D Tape Backup) the fewer opens i can achieve. It is an incremental backup, reset archive bit... So i am wondering if that plays a role, problem just started a week ago, and now i am having to restore the file from a previous date, the accountant has to re-enter every entry to bring it current, then we just hope it gets backed up and she can use it again... I do receive an error when trying to open the DB if Quicken is already open (File-Open Command) it says "quicken needs to restart." If i open the file by double clicking the QDF, it just hangs and eventual brings me to a blank quicken screen, as if no company was loaded. any ideas??
