This is a tool that helps repair DBF files used by several popular database programs.
DBF Fix Free is a file recovery and data repair tool for DBF files. DBF files are used widely in FoxPro, Visual FoxPro, Clipper and many other applications. Like any computer files these can get damaged and that causes havoc with the database application running on the DBF. Causes for damage can range from hardware failure, deliberate computer infection or underlying software instability. Fortunately the users do not require to have any specialized knowledge or expertise to get the corruptions repaired through this program. The repair process is almost automatic. You need to point the program to the damaged file, of course. You will need to specify a directory for the repaired file too. The interface will guide you through the process.
The process is a three step one. Initially you select the DBF file that needs to be repaired. A deep scan of the file is performed by the software at the second stage. The findings are compared with a proprietary database containing all known errors related to DBF files. At the final reporting stage error identification and recovery results are reported back to the user. Once the user approves the actions, the program then proceeds to complete file repair and recovery. The tool will work with all the Windows versions. This is quite a handy tool, if you are still into DBF based applications and have not graduated to something more substantial.
