Additional Information

Data corruptions are environmental and the most common cause is losing connectivity. We can fix the error but cannot stop it happening in the future as it will be something on the network or machine that is causing the data to be corrupted.

Things to check are:

-Whether the server is taking backup throughout the day when the PTP program is in use. This is not recommended.

-A particular computer in the office going to sleep mode when the PTP Software has been left open. This causes the program to close unexpectedly, which could result in the corruption.

-Bad Network cable which would cause connection issues.

-Antivirus- frequent scanning of the database.

Lastly, with this error the database can become unstable, therefore it is advisable to take regular backups through the software as a precaution.
