Database corrupted



I use ACT 6.0. My database was hanging. And then I did Crl+Alt Del and ended the application. Now I am not able to open it. Can anyone help me how to restore database?


Best Regards,

Re: Database corrupted

I have no good news for you. If you could open the database, there are several things that can be done to cleanup the database. However, if you can't open the database it is corrupted and you would need to have it repaired by a database repair person. Here is a link to a list of ACT! 6 database repair facilities.

What happens when you try to open it?


Before you do anything, backup your database folder.
