Utility program

The utility program can perform various tasks on your database files such as index corruption or damage and in most cases can repair any problems found.

Database corruption with Probate Plus is normally due to system failure such as network problems or workstations crashing. If database corruption becomes a repeat problem it will be worth moving to the full client-server version of Probate Plus. Contact the helpdesk for more details.

The utility can also rename matter references (to be used with caution) and produce various system reports.
