I've been using Visual FoxPro during some years. I've enough experience in work with such program. But some hours ago at opening database I've seen...Table Route.dbf has become corrupted. I've no idea why it happened. I only want to find a way for recovery dbf foxpro by any method or trick.
As alternative method, look at steps below:
You need to create an environment under which the table is NOT validated when it is opened. This can be achieved by the command -SET TABLEVALIDATE TO 0. Now you can easily open your tables.
Try to put a code in your program that automatically creates a duplicate copy of your tables (columns & rows), index files and databases.
Set-up a back-up routine.
Inform the user to properly shutdown the computer and regularly perform back-up.
Use UPS for power back-up.
