First of all my apologies to post this message here, but I’m desperated and I don’t know another site where would exist someone able to help me. Second, apologies for my English.
I’ve developed a program to manage recipes. I use two memo fields, one for the ingredients and the other for the explanation of how to make the recipe. The program is written with Clipper 5.3 + Comix 3.0. I’m migrating this program to xHarbour.
I use functions from Brian Erickson & Ken Sutcliffe – public domain – to make a backup to floppy disks. This routines always have worked fine … until a week ago. One user had a problem: he can’t restore the previous backup, and this occurs after he formated his HD. He is a writter of cooking books and has more than 6000 recipes stored with the program. It’s very important for me to recovery this recipes. The restore function success with restoring the file but I can´t open the recipes file anyhow. If I try to read it with DBX or WinDbu I receive this message:
Error COMIX/8201 read error
I’ve also tried use this recipes file with the xHarbour version of the program, and when I try to open and create indexes with xHarbour version I receive this message
hb_xgrab can’t allocate memory
I’ve also tried to recovery the file with dSavage without achieve it.
I’ll pay to anybody who success with recovery this files. If anybody is interested please send me an e-mail to email@example.com for details.
