I have this problem too although I have more than one database and it only happens on one of them. If it is an SQL issue, and I only have the free version that shipped with ACT Pro 2013, shouldn't it happen with every database? I'm frankly a little afraid to install a service pack as I really don't know what back end Act is running and Act itself works fine except for back up. The same database also konks the the repair routine.
Am I safe, just copying the database files outside of the program or is that not a complete backup?

It looks like the link has moved to
There is also a Microsoft article at
I'm still not sure what to download though as I don't know what verison of SQL 2008 the Act software installed and there appear to be multiple hotfixes.

I have not solved the problem. The chaps at ACT (Swiftpage) told me that you have to open the SERVICES.MSC, and stop the ACT SQL from running, then copy the entire database (folder and subfolders) to another location. You have have ACT turned off at this time.
That seems like a pain, but if it ensures that the database is safe, it's worth looking into.

This link is good information to a point. For a non-technical person, the steps around the batch file are scary. I called ACT support and they fixed the problem. I followed the tech's verbal steps and, while I have some technical knowledge, I have no idea what we were doing. Bottom line - it worked.
