Corrupted Money backup files

MS support was not able to fix problem using file repair or any of the other techniques we tried. Money opens up and then says it has to shut down apparently due to the corrupted file. MS tech support suggested there may be some utilities out there than might work but did not provide any specifics. Has anyone successfully used one? Using Money Plus 2008 but problem started with Money 2007. Money 2005 UK edition - by back up file .mbf will not restore as it says it is corrupted or is not an .mbf file

5 +years of data and no Money Support in the UK or from the US

Tearing hair out and very worried as all my consultancy company records on file.

    I have the same problem with Microsoft Money 2002. I lost around 1 and 1/2 years data. Luckily, I had a backup on my hard drive taken 1 and 1/2 years back. Otherwise, I would have lost around 8 years data.



    Post if you found a solution. I am trying to input the data manually.

There are a few things you can do. Manually open up the *.mbf file, does it open?
If it doesn't, the file type *.mbf may not be associated to Money 2007 anymore. Very common.
If the file becomes too large they also become corrupted. It may be possible to export the *.mbf file to Microsoft Excel. Make sure you create a copy of the file before manipulating it.

Actually.... if you have a system administrator. They should have a back up tape, you should already have a path to the file you can give them. They can do a backup and restore of a day or two ago and see if that mbf file was not corrupted as well.

Let me know if I can be of anymore help =)

Good luck!

HOW TO SOLVE VFP FILE CURRUPT WHEN POWER FAILURE


At times, you may view that your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database is behaving abnormally. Some of the abnormal symptoms could be an error message while opening any database table, invalid characters in place of pre-defined values, and and more. The main reason for abnormal behavior of the database is its corruption due some logical crash. Few common reasons for corruption of MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database are abnormal termination, faulty network devices, simultaneous modifications, conflicting third-party software, and incompatible service packs.
To overcome such database corruption scenarios, the user can use an up-to-date backup and perform restoration. However, restoration fails in cases where the user either forgets to create a database or the database backup itself gets damaged. In such cases, the database users can use a third-party DBF File Repair application to repair his/her corrupted database.
To illustrate the above case, consider a real-time scenario wherein you execute a query to modify your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database. While the query was performing the modification, the system shutdown due to power failure. However, the next time you tried to mount the database, you encountered an error message that did not allow you to access the database records. Moreover, the same error message appears every time you try to access the database.
Cause:
The root cause for the error message is MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database corruption due to improper system shutdown.
Resolution:
The database corruption error message can be surmounted by following the below steps:
Use a complete database backup and perform restoration. However, in case of database backup unavailability, you will need to search for a commercial DBF File Repair utility.
A third-party DBF Repair application uses effective repair techniques to repair logically damaged MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database and restore it at a new and safe location. The original database during the repair process remains intact. The tool is easy-to-understand and allows even a non-technical person to perform repair.
DBF Recovery Software is a comprehensive solution to repair databases created in MS Visual FoxPro 9.0, MS Visual FoxPro 8.0, and MS Visual FoxPro 7.0. The tool also repairs databases built in dBase III, dBase IV, and dBase V. Supported by Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP, and 2000, the DBF Repair tool creates a new repaired file that can be attached to existing database.
Tanvi Sharma is a self employed Internet entrepreneur and product reviewer. This DBF Repair utility is extremely useful when the dBase and Foxpro database gets corrupted due to internal program errors, hardware malfunctioning, accidental deletion of data and more. This DBF Repair software repairs all types of database components including table name, column name, column data type, indexes and primary keys.
