In fact, this is what I had to deal with. With the help of complex manipulations, I learned how to open FoxPro files on my tablet. It made me work, tk. I often have to do the data "on the go." But there was a problem. I could not solve this complexity for several days. I can not open the file because of an error. This dbf file is not recognized. I had to check my device for viruses. The cause of the corruption of my file was found. Cured my smartphone, I could not open the file. The format is no longer determined. On one of the forums I found a topic with a similar problem. There was a link to this online service. I paid for this service. And I was pleased with it. Because my file was finally restored. It was open, and all the data was in place. So I was very happy. Thank you.

It all started recently. My FoxPro began to behave strangely. I did not use the latest version. Because I was used to it and thought it was more convenient in my work. But recently she began to give me a lot of mistakes during my work. This made me update the software. With the update, the errors no longer appear. But the important file was corrupted. The DBF file tried to open the plug-in from the TotalCommander BaseView. It opens with hieroglyphics: (Then I did not understand DBF and came here.) I started looking for some sort of ways to reanimate my file. Spent a couple of hours studying the solution options. I found some recommendations on thematic sites. Everyone was happy with the Online File Repair Service. I decided to use this service. The result left me satisfied. The ratio of price to quality online service is well balanced. Works quickly and efficiently.

Sometimes I have to work on remote access. My working machine is Dell Inspiron. I adore it. But a couple of days ago I decided to download updates for Windows 10.1. When I started the process, another program was launched. When the laptop finished updating, it automatically rebooted. After the updates, I opened my database through Visual FoxPro, and I could not see all my data for the day. I tried to find some .dbf fix tools, but I could not find anything. I began to rely on third-party utilities or any recovery tools. I immediately rejected the free programs. They only partially restored something. The too expensive tools I decided not to pay attention. One of my colleagues advised this online-service. Earlier I did not deal with online services for data recovery. And now using this recovery tool, I returned my data. The database was completely resurrected. The speed of the service is not too huge. However, unlike free programs, this service does everything as it should. I'll comment, I'll unsubscribe immediately.

I thought about writing about what happened to me. We work with the database through Visual FoxPro 9.0 for several weeks. Each of our colleagues added new information to the database. Yesterday, the database fell. We tried to open a database to open it and retrieve the data. But we saw the message: "Visual FoxPro is not a tabular error when opening a DBF file". We have applied some fixes to dbf, but none of them has produced the corresponding result. I had to turn to third-party utilities and programs. And eventually we found this online service. He attracted not only the opportunity to fix everything online. But not very high cost. Plus there were reviews on some online resources where this online service had the most positive feedback. We were not mistaken! After we acted following the instructions, our problem was fixed. I liked the simplicity of use. And of course the fullness of use. And the fact that the service coped with a fairly heavy file over 300 MB. There will be complaints or suggestions I will write here. While I use not very long time.

My .DBF file has been damaged. This file was necessary for the job, and the damage to the file was almost a disaster.

The service was so simple that after the first use I was able to restore the file. Thank you very much!
