Validate and Repair Crashes Trying to Fix File
I have the latest subscription version of Windows 10 Home and Quicken for Windows, R27.28. I was using a data file that was seemingly working fine. I was having issues downloading from a certain bank, so I tried to update from web connect to direct connect, based on a program suggestion. Trying to change that connection method seemed to corrupt the file. It takes forever to open the file, and it crashes trying almost anything. I went to a couple of recent backup files from before the time this change was made. After those files are restored, I can open them. I then tried changing the connection method on either of these files, and the files once again get corrupted, and crash as soon as I try to open them. I was guessing maybe the issue was that even these older backup files had some underlying issue with the files, so I tried reopening the backup files, and immediately trying to "Validate and repair ..." the files, but both of them crash when trying to validate and repair. If validate and repair crashes any of my backup files, how do I fix one to go forward?
