  • Copy your *.mny and last few *.mbf files to other media, such as a USB flash drive. Just in case.

    Probably, the best thing to do is to restore your newest *.mbf file. If Money is closed, you can Open the *.mbf file, and that will open Money. If during the restore, you choose a new different filename to restore to, Money will not overwrite the *.mny file in case you want to try repair on it later. If your newest backup file does not work, open your second-newest instead.

    You could try a repair on the *.mny file, but you are probably going to be better off just restoring. The exception is if the backup (*.mbf) files are pretty old.

    If none of these work, reinstall Microsoft Money Plus.
