Fixed unexpected server-close errors, more
Stellar Data Recovery is expanding their lineup of data-recovery tools with the Stellar Phoenix FileMaker Recovery repair utility, a program for Macs that promises to repair and recover otherwise-inaccessible data from corrupted FileMaker databases. The program can recover files corrupted by the unexpected closure of a server, the deletion of auto-enter calculation fields or operating system issues.
The program supports the latest versions of FileMaker as well as legacy editions (7.x-11.x), and works with Mac OS X 10.5 or later. A free trial version will scan damaged FileMaker databases and show users what records and tables could be recovered; actual recovery requires purchase, which starts at $199. The program keeps a detailed log of all actions taken during the recovery process for later analysis.
The program is available under three different licenses: an Academic License ($169) allows installation on multiple computers in a single location; the Technician license ($239) offers multiple installs at different locations, and the Administrator license ($199) mirrors the Academic license, only for corporations instead of institutions. The software comes with a 30-day guarantee.
