    Default Computer shut down. Now have issues.

    Running V7. Computer got shut down unexpectedly. We manually removed a couple of records that were seemingly corrupted. But still when we try to compact we get a message "mileage database cannot be compacted". Upon examination there is file named mileage.$$m that I'm pretty sure was a temp file that should be deleted. But there is also a mileage.sem that has the same time stamp as mileage.$$m file. I manually opened the mileage.dbf file and it looks Ok. I know there are certain files that can simply be deleted with the database closed and will rebuild but I'm not sure which ones. I know it is a long shot with just this info but can anyone make any suggestions where to start? Thanks

    Yes, not the .sem file. Also delete any .mpx files like

    $$1A2900.MPX
    There can be only one.
