Have a DBF file with a record with a corrupted Memo field. Have tried DBF Toolbox and Stellar DBF Recovery tools - neither worked.

Any recommended Repair tools? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, There are at least two tools written in VFP and for repairing VFP tables:

  • CMREPAIR CM Table Repair https://esoft.cmstory.com/cm-table-repair
  • fixdbffpt under Copyright (C) 2001 Arto Toikka I sometimes use one and sometimes the other. The second if simply the FPTs are corrupted, and CM REPAIR if the DBF header info is no longer in phase with the dimensions of the table.

I manage with both to repair all the corrupted VFP tables, by index writing errors, network or power supply cuts.. Regards

Thanks for your reply Gilles.

Where can I find fixdbffpt? (Only found an older version from 1995 online).
