Hello and thank you for using this service,
That's part of the "end of day" operations in Aloha. It happens after EOD. First thing I would try is to disable/uninstall any security or antivirus software you have on that server. Try again.
Another thing to note. It's OFTEN problematic when a new owner buys a restaurant along with the POS equipment and software already installed. ALL pos software is fairly complex stuff, and without a service contract from the people that originally set it up, it can be difficult to get to the bottom of the problems as you don't know the state of all the various machines and software that are hooked up. With Aloha , it is *possible* that you can maintain it yourself and/or with the help of another local pro and/or services like this. However, you will need patience and probably need to ask a number of questions. I've taken on several such on site jobs for POS software over the years, and this is always the general case.

Thanks for the reply.
This has been an undertaking, but the only thing that I have been changing are menu item names and pricing.
It has been working fine up for about a week.
Turned off the anti-virus software and rebooting and it is still attempting to "grind" a file.
Found the folder...
Still waiting for it to "grind".

I still need help...
You cannot remote connect into that computer bc it does not have internet access.
I have been researching online on my laptop, but the POS server does not have internet.
I renamed the date file - just added a "1" on the end and are able to use it again.
Don't know if this was a bad idea.
