Hi Stretch,

Click on File at top left of your Gopher program,
- Backup Database,
- Validation Tab
- Validate button at the bottom right.
- when it completes the validation click Repair Database

This will scan and try to repair any database damage. Please make sure your are creating backups of your data.

If so try this.

See if this resolves it.

Hi stretch,

Try backing up your data and then restore your data from the backup you made. See if that resolves this.
