    When copying 1.2 GB mdb from pc to network, it seems that the copy created in the network is corrupted although I'm not able to tell by looking at the size of the file. Does anyone have an experience of copying a big mdb file from pc to network?

    Hello, large MDB files have threat go get corrupt so it is advisable to use small files on server. But in the case of mdb file corruption you can use Access Fix Toolbox to get back your corrupt data. http://www.access.fixtoolbox.com/[/url]

    Kindly refer to the page for instruction and download of the solution:

    I've copied much larger files across networks without issue, so a number of questions:

    Firstly, why are you copying the data files instead of a full backup which will be smaller and have all of the db files within it?

    Secondly, what is it that tells you it is corrupt? What messages are you seeing relating to corruption? Saying 'it seems' to be corrupt isn't enough - the messages you see may be of help.

    Don't rely on software that will claim to repair a corruption without knowing what the corruption is - data loss is a risk in such situations.

    Also, do files regularly get corrupted across your network, or on the drive that you copied the file to?

    It's quite common for me to copy a backup - not just the mdb / ldb files to my local pc to work on off line.

    This works fine for me - have you tried using this approach rather than taking the mdb file?

    You could use tools that generate extra redundancy like quickpar[/url].

    The extra redundant files helps to "repair" the copy if parity is off (due corruption), by reading doublechecking it with the par-files.
