Chapter 9: Maintaining and Correcting En... > Checking and Maintaining Your Files

Checking and Maintaining Your Files

You need to explore the file maintenance options. From the main toolbar, click File and then Maintenance. The File Maintenance box appears, as shown in Figure 9-1.

The File Maintenance screen may look a little daunting, but you probably need to use only the Check Data and Corrections options with any regularity. I look at each function in the following sections.

Figure 9-1: File maintenance options let you check and correct your data.

Checking data

This facility allows you to check your data to make sure that it’s not corrupt. If your computer switches off in the middle of using Sage, using this facility is a good idea. Power cuts aren’t unusual, and if you don’t have an alternative power supply, Sage closes without being shut down properly, which can sometimes lead to corruption of data.
