[Solved] Recover corrupted odb-file

Postby joepiec » Wed Oct 25, 2017 11:45 am

After a sudden crash while scrolling through a table, my odb-database is corrupted. When the file is opened, the filter selection window appears. Open office crashes as soon as I try to open the table overview or any form or query.
I have found these two recovery software products, Kernel for Base and SysInfoTools Base Repair, which claim to recover my database (I have run the free trial versions of both). However, I have read several posts on this forum stating that none of these tools could solve the problem for corrupted write or calc-files. Is it still worth a try, or a waste of money? Alternatively, is there anybody with a licensed version of these tools who would be willing to run them on my corrupted database?
Thanks!

Welcome to the (probably wrong) forum.

See the Base forum and also see [Tutorial] Recovering a damaged odb file.

This may also be of limited assistance - [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files
AOO 4.1.4, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the up to date Writer guide for information. Click the Help button on a pop-up window for extensive help on that function.

Thanks for your advice, John_Ha. The method described in the tutorial did not work in my case, but through this post on the Base forum I found someone who could solve the problem for me. Sliderule is the greatest!
