I have a problem where dbf files will show an incredibly large (not to mention completely impossible) size. Currently, the size reported if I do a listing is over 3 gig. This is obviously wrong since it is stored on a 1gig drive. Any ideas why this is happening or how to fix it?

How are you interrogating / reporting the file size?

And at last, below the guide how to recover .dbf file, see steps...

1. Open the dBase command line from the Windows Start menu.

2. Log into the local dBase software with your username and password.

3. Click on the dBase command line section of the window that is open.

4. Type "dbf /recover yourDbaseFile.dbf" into the command line, where "yourDbaseFile.dbf" is the name of the dBase file whose tables are corrupted.

Press "Enter." dBase takes some time (ranging from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the database) to analyze and repair the file and its contents. You are alerted when this process is finished.

Another methods contains referred link and might be effective in case manual ways can’t help, look below…

Ah ... you are using dBase and this is a forum for Microsoft SQL Server. It may be that there is noone here who knows about dBase, sorry.

I suggest you try a dBase specific forum. Good luck
