    Unrecognized database format


    What keeps causing this to occur? The solution seems to be just opening the backend file and it auto-repairs itself. But, how do I prevent this in the first place? I'm not sure what background info to provide, please ask away.

    Thanks, that looks like it could be it. I'm a little confused about how to perform those steps when the backend file is stored on a server. I've asked our IT people to try it, since I presume they have access to the server machine itself.
