My PC/Windows just shut itself down while I was running a FoxPro app saying it couldn't find a bootable disk. Very odd. All seems to be working fine now.


I could extract message archives from a corrupted Lotus Notes database. But I have two letters that were recently received, they did not repair, that is, there is no text there, only the subject of the letter and the email address of the sender


Good Tool for DBF Recovery.

Good Tool for DBF Recovery. I have used this for .DBF file recovery which was created in dBase IV. I had recovered my corrupt database successfully. I am happy with the repair results. The customer support of the company is good. Thanks a lot!! + Supports Blob field. + Support Windows 10 - Data recovery process should be faster. - Fast scanning


I did the job! Price of tool was right. And it restored a Clipper file with corrupt memos records in seconds. Their preview page is nice too.


Tool showed the tremendous results with my corrupted dbf files. Utility supports only files of Clipper, Dbase, FoxPro databases. I waited more! I haven't ever been having such effective solution for resolving troubles with .DBF files.
