Repairing the Locket Database

Occasionally Locket will come up with spurious errors for no apparent reason. This can be caused by a corrupt database (Locket uses the Microsoft Access database) which itself can be caused by the unsafe removal of Locket (see 'How to Correctly Exit Locket').

To repair the database, follow the simple steps.

  1. Run up Locket at before logging in, locate the Microsoft Office icon in the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Click on the icon and select 'Compact and Repair Database'.
  3. Once the computer has finished, login to Locket as normal and see if that resolves the issues. If not, contact me for assistance.
