Click "Options" tab in the dialog, you can set options in repairing process:
•If "Open the fixed file when finished" option is selected, then DDBFR will open the fixed DBF files after the reparation. Note you need application associating with the 'dbf' extension to open the DBF files.
•If "Recover deleted records" option is selected, then DDBFR will recover deleted records in the database.
•If "Repair incorrect date fields" option is selected, then DDBFR will repair incorrect date fields and reset them to default values. More specifically, if the year is incorrect, then it is reset to 1900; if the month is incorrect, it is reset to 1(January); if the day is incorrect, it is reset to 1.
•If "Split table when there are more than ### fields" option is selected, and you specify the maximum field count. Thus when DDBFR detects there are more than 255 fields in the table, it will create a new split table to accommodate the remaining fields. And if the remaining fields are still more than 255 fields, a second new split table will be created, and so on.
•If "Split file when it is larger than ### MB" option is selected, and you specify the maximum file size(in MB), then when the output fixed file is larger than this limit, DDBFR will create a new split file to accommodate the remaining recovered data. And if the split file reaches the limit again, a second new split file will be created, and so on.
•If "Read source DBT/FPT file for the memo or binary data fields" is selected, then when DDBFR is repairing the corrupt DBF file, it will try read the memo or binary data fields from the accompanying DBT or FPT file. Otherwise, DDBFR will just set the memo or binary data fields to empty. This option is enabled by default. However, if you find DDBFR has problems in recovering a DBF file with an accompanying DBT/FPT file, then you may disable this option and try again.
•"Ignore source DBT/FPT file filled with all zeros". In general, if a source DBT/FPT file accompanying with a DBF file is filled with zeros, then this file doesn't contain any useful data so can be ignored. This option is enabled by default, which asks DDBFR to ignore those DBT/FPT files filled with zeros.
•DDBFR will remember the options the last time you set.
