Repairing databases

Index  Previous  Next


Crypt-o databases can be corrupted due to many factors such as power failure, OS failure, hardware failure, etc. Not always there is a fresh backup copy to fix the database corruption by restoring the backup.

Crypt-o has a built-in function to perform the database integrity check and repair. Though it may not work for severe database corruptions.

 

To perform the database check and repair do the following:

 

Stop the Crypt-o Server service.
Open the command prompt as an Administrator on the server computer and execute the following command:
"C:\Program Files\Crypt-o\server.exe" -a -checkdb"
       * Change the path to the server.exe file according to your installation.
You will see a message that the database check will be performed on the server start.
Start the Crypt-o Server service.

 

After that, when you log on to Crypt-o and access databases they will be checked for errors. If there are errors, the repair will be performed.

NOTE: You can omit the database integrity check and force the database repair by specifying the -checkdb:repair command line switch instead of the -checkdb switch.
