Before performing a file integrity test sequence it is highly recommended that a backup file (QBB) be created. 


Follow the steps below:

Create a backup to ensure that you have a current saved copy of the data file prior to any repairs being undertaken. 

In some situations, badly damaged files are rendered unusable if the rebuild fails, so a backup is very important.

As this is backup you are to perform will be used during a file integrity test sequence, it will be known as your pre-verification backup.

This means that you will need to select the option that does not include a verification as part of the backup operation.

·         

Select the No verification (not recommended) option for this step.

Once the pre-verification backup has been created you can now perform the 1st verification step.

Click on the File menu 

·         Select Utilities 

·         Then select Verify Data to perform the verify operation 


Once the 1st verification has been performed, you would be informed whether or not any errors are detected. If there are errors detected then continue on with the rebuild operation.

When the rebuild data operation has completed, you will need to perform the 2nd verification to confirm whether there are any residual errors that may require further investigation.

If further errors are detected then you will need to investigate the logged errors in the QBWIN.LOG error log file. You can do this on your own or with one of the technicians in the Technical Support Team.
