File repair was hanging for me, but found workaround RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I felt my main Money file was running slowly. I tried a Standard file repair, which actually invokes the salv.exe program. Level 1 worked, but level 2 hung. Tried many things before I found what worked for me.

    I opened a command window by right-clicking the icon and choosing RunAsAdministrator. In the resulting command window, I typed


    That ran the salvage as administrator. I suspect that launching Money with RunAsAdministrator then doing a File->RepairMoneyFile->StandardFileRepair level 2 would have worked the same way.

    I don't know why that made a difference, but it did.
