When attempting use the Data Maintenance Wizard to Archive, Backup or Verify Data Integrity you receive the following error:



Where <DatabasePath> is the installation folder for Guard1 Plus (e.g. C:\Program Files\Guard1 Plus or C:\TimeKeeping Systems\Guard1 Plus).


This error may be followed by 53: File not found and multiple 91: Object variable or With Block variable not set errors.






  1. Close and reopen Guard1 Plus. If you received the error when attempting to Archive your data, the items you were attempting to Archive may still be in the master database, or they may have been removed successfully.
  2. Reduce the size of your database.
  3. Attempt to delete the items again (if they were not deleted in Step 2.)
  4. If the error recurs, your database is corrupt. You will have to restore from a Backup file.


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