Data corruption in tally 7.2 ?

In Tally 7.2, the most common problem is any time data got corrupted and you can’t log in to the company.
Solutions to that problem was to take back up frequently of your work however again you have to re enter all your entries since last back up time which is a big hazard

The best solution to the problem is migrate to tally.erp 9 as till date I never see any single instance of this problem and I never lose any my single entry after migrating to tally.erp 9 in spite of so many power disturbance or any other reason

One another good feature of tally.erp 9 is that u can take back up (by copy paste method) at any time even if you are working on it, viewing any ledger or printing or making entry which was not possible in earlier version of tally.

However, if due to some reason, you still love to stick to outdated version of tally 7.2 and if your data corrupted, then here is an another solution to this.

Start your tally and go to main menu. (if your tally load the company by default then disable it by editing tally.ini file)
Now PRESS alt+ctr+R ( R means Re-write ). This option is well known as Re write books of account.
You will be prompted to select the company to re-write. Select and confirm.
It will display the process in progress, wait until it finish 100%
If your luck is good then the process will finish 100% and you will be able to get your data back and can work again otherwise, tally will quite and you have to restore your old data back up  if the same is handy, but if not then you have no option except writing all the entries again.

If you find any problem or looking solutions for tally 7.2, do not hesitate to contact me by.

    pls help me by sending some utility so that i can repair company.500

    • Mahendra

      Sorry Pradip,

      Definitely you lost your tally data. And unfortunately there is no such utility to repair company.500 or to recover your data.
      I only can suggest you to upgrade your tally 7.2 to tally.erp 9 at the earliest as in tally.erp there is no chance of data corruption

      • Tarun Kumar Sharma

        I Use the tally 7.2 and our one company data has been corrupted

        So Please Help me I have a backup upto 15 May but i have lots of entries in tally Aprox. over the 3500 entries Please Help me

        • Mahendra

          You need to hire a professional if you don’t want to re-enter all your entries. Depending on the size of your data, they may charge Rs. 2000-5000! I don’t think some will help you for your own mistake.
          Best solutions is to upgrade your software to Tally.erp 9 where data never get corrupted!

          I have no sympathy for Tally 7.2 users!

    • Mahendra

      Create a new directory say data101 or data999 within your tally folder.
      Set the data path through your tally.ini file or through F12 Data configuration if you are using tally.erp 9
      restore here your old data. now u can see your old data back up
      while your current data will also there in the originial data folder.
      You can compare both the data by running two instance of tally.erp 9 and can load two different company at the same of time.
      I hope, it will be serve your purpose

    File : D:\tallyERP\10005\TranMgr.900
    Size 128
    Position: 128
    Chars : 128(Done 0)

    Do the following steps:
    First create a copy of the data folder. so that if something goes wrong you will have atleast a copy of it.

    Secondly, open tally data folder and delete all .TSF files.

    Then restart Tally and try to open the company. It will work.

      Start Motors,

      I am very sorry about the issues you are facing. Unfortunately there is no way to recover those entries.
      If you were using Tally.ERP 9 it may never happen
