SOURCE: 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.

How to fix corrupted Visual FoxPro 9 dbf, dbc?


"Not a table" means more serious problem than TABLEVALIDATE can fix obviously. Also when DBF recovery fails the problem can be critical (if you have the DBF recovery which supports your DBF file format).

You should look at the DBF header via some hexa editor. You may even use the one from VFP:

DO HOME() + "Tools\HexEdit\HexEdit.app"

It will ask for a file opening so please select your DBF and post first two lines here or look at the DBF structure description in the VFP help.

First two lines (in hex editor) contain the file type, number of records, record size, last update etc. "Not a table" means the first byte was not recognized as valid DBF file marker.
Additional lines contain column descriptions each one in 16 bytes.

More info: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/st4a0s68(v=vs.80).aspx
Second easiest fix is use DBF Recovery Toolbox or some other applications. Search in Google. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/dbf_recovery.html

Themes currupt except default.


Hi,

Your theme is corrupt.... You can do any of the following;

1. Download the Nokia PC Suit from Nokia

2. After running the Nokia PC suite on your PC, then open the application and launch it. From the Nokia PC Suite application back up all the information you have on your phone. This could take about 45 minutes.

3. Using the PC Suite locate update Phone Software. Once you do this you'll have a browser open up. Download the update from that page. Save it somewhere in your computer.

4. After download is complete you can now proceed to update your phone.

Upon completion you'll have your theme fixed.

Good Luck

File currupt


you can reload the operating system by pressing alt+F10 during boot. (if you still have recovery partition on your harddrive).
if you already deleted recovery partition from your harddrive, the only option is installing OS from cd.
