Actually Ed ... is the database set to 'Forced Write = on' ? You WOULD get this
problem if windows did not write the information to the disk! I used to have a
problem with data going missing on one site. It would work perfectly during the
day, but next day all the data was missing. Eventually we hard wired the mains
supply! The cleaner would just pull out the nearest plug to the corner without
reading the 'Do Not Switch Off' label ... because it was easier than using the
socket she was supposed to be using :) This was supposed to be writing to disk,
but until the application was closed properly nothing was hitting the disk. Not
seen THAT particular problem for over ten years though :(
