RECENTLY I HAVE A TERRIBLE PROBLEM ABOUT DATABASE IN VISUAL FOXPRO 8. THERE ARE 400 DBF FILE IN MY DBC. 2 DAYS AGO, AFTER INPUTED DATA, I EXITED THE APPLICATION. THE NEXT MORNING I RAN THE APPLICATION, IT MESSAGE TO ME THAT "NOT A TABLE". I CHECKED AND FOUND THAT 300 DBF FILES GOT ERROR "NOT A TABLE". ALTHOUGHT MOST OF THEM WEREN'T INPUTED DATA AND POWER AND HARDWARE WERE IN GOOD STATE, THEY STILL BECAME BAD. I DON'T KNOW WHY ARE THEY INFESTED BY VIRUS I MUST DO HOW TO FIX THEM

You may need to repair dbc or some tables. You may check:

or try to repair with a repair software (if is possible test on copies of bad database) :

In the future, please do not use all capital letters. It is considered shouting and makes the message harder to read.

It happens even with Vfp9. Tables were very stable in fox 2.6 but when the dbc was introduced, reliability dipped. This happens especially with large tables. The best alternative is to migrate your data to something like SQL Server.
