I wish I could help ya... Maybe a little more information would be useful for others?
- qex, that's quicken right? What version are they from?
- How do you know they're corrupted? I mean, is it Quicken telling you that they're corrupted, or did you use some archiving software that took a crap or something?
- If you make copies of the files and open them in notepad can you make any sense of them? Like, does it look like if worse came to worse you could sort through them manually?
- Is it possible some kind of file recovery would help? Like, did you move them between drives or anything? If there's a chance, stop all file operations possible, don't defragment, don't move files, don't use the computer if you can help it.
