I am using version 8.0.2.4339

I have a client that has recently had his database become
corrupted on two separate occasions. I have opened a ticket
with Sybase support and they could not help due to the fact
that they could not open the database either. I have since
noticed that this client has been running contig.exe against
his database file. Could this possibly cause any problems?

Thanks,
Joe

without knowing the nature of the corruption, it is difficult to
determine. However, it is not likely to be the source.
