Data corruption in Sage? Know what to do next!

Sage 50 is a gem of all accounting software available for individual and commercial uses in all parts of the world. With loads of features and specifications, Sage overcomes all expectations and helps its users complete all accounting tasks accurately in the least amount of time. Surprisingly, it is also prone to lots of errors like other accounting and financial management software programs available in the competitive market. Although taking Sage 50 support is a good way to resolve the issue of data corruption, yet some smart moves can help you make things quite easy for you. Following is a discussion on data corruption issue in Sage and possible solutions to fix the issue amicably in no time.


Problem: A Sage user is affected by corrupted Sage 50 data with 143000 transactions. Even, customers’ daily backups are also corrupt. Moreover,
to cure and the option he is looking for are completely disruptive and costly.

Things you should do in such conditions:

  • Backing up corrupt data and overwriting backup is always a silly mistake. Whenever Sage asks do you want to check the data, instantly click the YES option.
  • Recording of data at year end and clearing the audit trail make things not only slow but also annoying. This can result in hardware issues or it can consume longer time to update all the tables.
  • Sage users need to have a UPS for their server or PC where their accounts data is made live.

As these three steps always help you get better results and keep the issue of data corruption at bay. Let’s have a look at some possible solutions suggested online.

A full backup at least once a week and a data only backup every other day. Keep weekly backups for at least 3 months off site. Users of an older version of the program can change the name of the backup file to present day option.

Clearing the audit trail to year end is always a big blunder. If you really want to lose all your Customers and Suppliers history, you have clear audit trail option. Always check Customer or Supplier History at least 6 months.

Sending the data to Sage support providing resources can be a great option for handling corrupted data issues in a perfect manner.

Sage is more likely to fix this issue free of cost if the Sage product you are using is under warranty. Otherwise, using a paid tech support service can be an effective option for preventing valuable data from being lost unwillingly
