Power outage took out a file store.mny which is a microsoft money 2002 file. Standard repair only gives me invalid database. Tried on different computers and newer versions on the program to same effect. Also same thing with the backup files. Are there any other options for repair?

Also same thing with the backup files

You tried a backup file (not in use, and so not affected by the power outage) and it gave you "invalid database" on the same computer. Is this correct?

Did you try the backup file on a different computer?

If all this failed, then it would appear the power failure did some damage to your hard drive. If that is the case, you would have to re-construct your ledger from paper backup copies.

A recovery service may be able to help but they are usually pricey.
