Repair Company Data in TallyPrime | Rewrite

If there any issues in your company data, then it might come in the way of your daily operations and also hinder data activities like backup or split. For such a scenario, TallyPrime comes with a useful tool that will help you recover your data. The Repair feature checks your masters and transactions for any issues, and recovers the data through the data rewrite process. The percentage of data recovery will depend on the nature of the issue.

It is important to note that if you are using TallyPrime Edit Log Release 2.1 or TallyPrime Release 2.1 with Edit Log enabled or their successors, the damage of data, for instance, damage of some transactions and masters, will also remove the Edit Logs created for those masters and transactions. 

Moreover, whenever you repair a Company data of TallyPrime Edit Log Release 2.1 or TallyPrime Release 2.1 with Edit Log enabled, then the action of data repair will get recorded as a log under Company. To know more about this, refer to Activities Affecting Edit Log.

Thereafter, the data will be compatible in the older release in which you can continue to use it for your business records.

  1. Start menu > Run, and enter Tally.exe followed by <file path> <data path> 0. For example:
    If the data is in the application folder, then use “D:TPR 2.1tally.exe” “D:data” 0
    If the data folder and the application folder are in different location, then use “D:TPR 2.1tally.exe” “D:data” 0.
  2. Click OK. TallyPrime will open in the Zero Command mode.

Now you can proceed to repair your company data using the steps described in the above section.
