The fixed DBF file still has errors when I try to extract it, why?

If DBF data are corrupted partially, different applications, such as DORCR and WinZip may possibly use slightly different algorithms to extract the corrupted data. So if items in a DBF file are partially corrupted, it is better to unzip the fixed DBF file with DORCR again. To do this, please:

      1. Input your corrupted file name to 'Select DBF or Self extracting file to be repaired' edit box.
      2. Input a filename with '.exe' extension to the 'Output fixed file' edit box.
      3. Click "Start Repair", DORCR will repair the corrupted DBF file and generate a new self-extracting DBF file for it.
      4. Run the self-extracting DBF file and unzip the files in it.

For example, you want to repair a file named MyFiles.DBF, then if you specify the "Output fixed file" with an '.exe' extension, for example, MyFiles_fixed.exe, DORCR will repair the DBF file and generate a self-extracting DBF file named MyFiles_fixed.exe. This self-extracting DBF file uses the same decompression engine as DORCR, so you can extract the partially corrupted items by executing it.
