Hi Marc,

The datafile reported ONE fault regarding ONE record.
So a Repair after Check data was done.
Now Omnis reports thousands and thousands of faults regarding unused blocks.
Inserting into the datafile is not possible, message is "Datafiles are full".
Omnis says there are 3.000.000 blocks free.
But as the fault-message says "Unused blocks" etc. I could not find any other solution than exporting/importing.

Marc, I would gladly like to try your Transfer Tool.

We built a data transfer tool that doesn’t require to import/export. 
Since we have so much data we ran up to the limits of the file size of the OS. So we figured out a way to work around it.

If you want I can send you a copy of our library.

What you might want to do in advance is to check which index is giving you all of your data ( run over each index start to end & end to start to find an index which is fully functional )

If none of them is fully OK you will have to see which index is the best en how ( which index ) can you give the missing records.


PS: to keep our data in good health:
	- we try not to delete and insert data ( mark them as to be deleted )
		after we deleted the data we do an import-export
	- we do daily a quick-check and if something is found we perform a import export with our tool
	- we use ODB to share our data in multi-user
