If the error does not recur it is highly recommended that you Archive your database immediately to reduce its size. If the database grows too large it may become corrupt, resulting in loss of all your button and patrol data. Corrupt databases are not recoverable.


If the error recurs you must reduce the size of the Guard1 Plus database.


See Guard1 Plus Data Maintenance for information on how to prevent database problems..
