  • Can't Backup or Validate GOPHER

    When I click "Backup" I get the error: "Can not open backup file C:/windows/temp/gopher2002.GKB so I go to File, Restore Database then Validation and hit REPAIR DATABASE...and I get this error: Bad parameters on attach or create database secondary server attachments can not validate databases...what the heck should I do? I didn't delete or move any files this just randomly happened...thanks!!

      Can you first try restarting your computer. If that doesn't work, try deleting the "C:/windows/temp/gopher2002.GBK" file and try again.

        restarting didn't work...although I did get a new error... BL0B not found under backup database....if I delete the C:/windows/temp/gopher2002.GBK will I loose any of my database?

          Can you still use the program normally? Does all of your information appear on the various screens (e.g. Customer, Schedule, etc)?

          What happens if you click the Validate button instead of Repair Database?

              Ric,

              What are you backing your data up too? What kind of device? If all else fails at the moment you can go into your my computer icon from your desktop and copy the gopher2.gdb file. GDB stands for Gopher DataBase.

                  Ric,

                  Do you normally backup your data onto your c: drive?

                  The reason I ask, is because if you do, if your hard drive crashes and your backup is on your hard drive, then you won't have a functioning backup.

                  You should backup your data somewhere else to store it.

                          Hi Ric,

                          Could you please tell us the error messages you are seeing. We will need to know to assist.

                          If you can not gain access to your current database and need immediate access to your system you can attempt to use your last database backup. Then work forward from there.
