No good. I have continually tried to hold down "shift" key and clicking on Entourage. All that happens if rainbow wheel then 'entourage not responding" then I force quit. Next step please.
When you hold down Option and open Entourage, doesn't it bring the Database Utility ? And What version of Mac OS X are you using ?
No Database Utility comes up Ashik. Just the entourage icon, then whirling rainbow wheel, then 'entourage not responding' in force quite. When this all stared to go wrong yesterday... the 'database utility' did come up and i clicked rebuild. But it only partially rebuilt and then finally crashed...leaving it in the situation it is right now.
My system is OSx 10.6.8
How do I create a test user account please
OK Ashik. I'm in new account and entourage is asking me what I want to import...what do I check please
i now have the database utilty open asking me to select which of the 4 maintenance activities to perform. Verify, compact, rebuild, set Which should I check please?
ok rebuilding in progress. I think this this takes a long time. I will return when it finishes. Is that OK Ashik?
Well Ashik...just finished and nearly all looks well. Your email has come thru on the problematical Entourage.
However, a couple of times warning messages have come up regarding corrupt data but that seems to have stopped now that I've deleted some old emails.
I'm on holiday tonight and back on the 19th. If the warnings return, may I contact you again?
Meanwhile thanks for your patience and valued advice.
