  • Ah....... so that's what's been happening. As suspected it was Win10.

    It works with Win7 Share host, no problems.

    I move one to a Win7 from Win10 early last years, on and off it had sudden Unrecognized database format or a suspected disconnection.

    I had one more with Win10 running somewhere about 6 months. It had been a big pain. No spare to run in Win7 for now. Every time I get that message, I have to compact and repair (2007 format BE). It's actually a 2000 Format but when I made in into a new clean 2007 Format, it still had the same issue. 

    For Win10 users, I have to tell them to log-off when they are not in use and not to leave it idle because some times even when it is hosted on a Win7 Share, on rare occasion it still cause an error.

    On Win7 and Win7, no issues seen so far.

  • Exactly, it is entirely anothe (of many) Windows 10 issues that Microsoft still hasn't addressed in nearly a year now!  The workaround at present is to run the registry hack on all the Windows 10 computers.
