Advanced Options

Click "Advanced Options" tab in the dialog, you can set advanced options in repairing process:

"Use temporary file in report"


When using the demo version, for large MDB files, selecting this option can reduce the usage of the memory spaces by caching the report data in the temporary file. For small MDB files, you can unselect this option and the report data will be stored in the memory un-cached. By default, this option is selected.

"Output database format"


You can choose the output database format as "Access 95/97" format or "Access 2000" format. By default, "Automatically Determined" will be selected and DACCR will output the database format compatible with the Access installed on the local computer.

"Directory for temporary files"


DACCR uses this directory to create temporary files. By default, this field is set to Windows temporary directory. If it is blank all temporary files and folders will be created in the current directory.

"Internal Processing Buffer Size"


You can set the size(in bytes) of the buffer used for internal processing. Valid buffer size ranges from 1 to 32767. And the default value is 512.


If the file to be repaired is located on a reliable media, such as a hard disk, then you can set buffer size to 32767 to obtain the maximum repair speed. However, in most cases, the performance of the default value 512 is similar to that of 32767.


If the file is located on a corrupted media, such as a damaged floppy disk, then by setting a smaller buffer size, you can force DACCR to perform a more thorough scan and reparation. In an extreme case with buffer size equals to 1, DACCR will perform the most thorough scan but this will reduce the speed dramatically and is only recommended for relatively small files(1MB to 10MB).


In a word, by increasing the buffer size, the repair speed is increased but the thoroughness will be decreased if your file is located on a corrupted media. And vice versa.

"Auto check and apply product updates"


If this option is enabled, then DACCR will auto check if there are any new versions available when it is launched. If any, then it will upgrade the current version to the latest version automatically. This option is enabled by default.



You can select the language of the GUI. By default, it is set to the language of your local computer. You can also set it to other languages.
