Corrupt Database files.

By Astute guy ·
I have some database files which I have created on Visual FoxPro. Yesterday I was accessing them but what I found there was very shocking! I???m getting this: the .dbf file header is corrupted. Now I have no idea how to deal with this. I think my files are corrupted or aren???t they? What should I do? I need a software program which can repair my files. I searched on Google but I found a huge list. I can???t use all of them. Has anyone ever faced this kind situation in the past? Please help me.........!

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".

Also Include What OS you are attempting this on and if it is the same OS that the files where created on.
