Hi, I need some help! I have an Open Office Base database that I depend on heavily. Suddenly it won't open. The cursor bounces and then the Open Office tab at the bottom disappears. Nothing happens. It does the same thing if I go in through OO first, or click on the file itself.

A little background info: Yesterday, when I was using the database it said it couldn't save it because the disk was too full. So I cleared some space on the disk so I could save the file. Went back in after saving the file, and it wouldn't open.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need this file badly for my business! It has all my inventory in it. And, the bad news is that I backed it up after I got it saved yesterday, so my backup file does the same thing.

Thanks!

Hello

My method of making a backup is not destroying the old backup file but making a new copy of the file I want backup.

See here for more information.

This link can help you maybe for recovering the data.
