  • Do you have another copy of your .mny file or .mbf file somewhere that you could try to open? Maybe in the Recycle Bin or in File History if you are using that?

    In my experience it is usually not possible to recover a file that is giving the corrupt file message when you open it - you have to go back to a previous file or backup that has not been corrupted.

  • Check if there is a file   *.lrd  in the same folder as your  *.mny  file   (* standing in place of whatever you call your Money file) ~ and if there is, then delete it.  A  *.lrd  file is always created when Money is opened to STOP you (any of us) opening 2 Money files simultaneously.
