What is a data file corruption?

A data file corruption means your company file contains incorrect information. This may have been caused by network or environment related issues. If your data file is corrupt you may be experiencing the following error messages. Please click on each error message to learn more.


Is my data file corrupt?

To check if your file is corrupt, you can run the following two diagnostic utilities. These utilities will check your company file for any structural damages and data integrity.

Important - For best results, perform the optimisation and verification on the computer where your company file is stored.

If you can't optimise or verify successfully, your data file may be corrupt and you’ll need to restore your most recent backup. If you don't have a valid backup you can request your data file to be repaired.

Important - Repairing data files is a complex procedure and therefore we cannot guarantee that we’ll be able to repair your file or that all data will be retrieved.

This service is only available for online AccountRight company files. Because our online storage system is backed up regularly, we can retrieve a backup copy of your company file from a previous date.

This service shouldn’t replace your own backup routine. After all, it’s a lot quicker and easier (and cheaper!) to restore your own backups than using this service. Our Online Backup Retrieval service is more of a last resort.

Online AccountRight company files are only backed up if changes have been made since the previous system backup, so there won’t necessarily be backups for every online company file for every day.

Call us for more information, or to request this service.


Turnaround time

When you call to request this service, we’ll start the retrieval process straight away. It can take up to 2 hours to retrieve a backup, depending on the size of the file. We’ll contact you when your backup file is ready and provide instructions on how to access it.


Pricing

The cost for this service is $49.95 (incl. GST). Payment is required via credit card when you call to request the service.
