Repair or Compact a Database
Previous  Top  Next

There may be situations in which your SportsBM Database gets damaged because of a hardware problem or power outage. In those cases, you could Restore your latest backup. The problem here is that you will lose any changes or additions you have made since the last time you backed up your Database. You still may have to resort to this, but first try HY-TEK's Repair Database utility.

Click on
File from the Main Menu Bar, and then Repair/Compact Database. SportsBM will ask for confirmation and then check to make sure you have enough temporary disk space on your Hard Drive to perform the repair operation. Then SportsBM will go through the actions for repairing your Database, as much as possible. This process will also optimize and compact your database to remove deleted records.

SportsBM has completed the repair, go back and check the integrity of the Database: check your Accounts and run a few reports. If there are still problems, use the Restore feature to replace your current faulty Database with one of your backups.

HY-TEK recommends that you backup your SportsBM Database
BEFORE you use this feature. Please click Here for information on How to Backup Your Database.
