I've been running RM6 under Wine for Mac on a MacBook as a way of using RM-to-go on a Mac. I installed RM6 on the MacBook but work on the database from a RM-to-go flash drive. It has been working great until a couple days ago when someone just shut the MacBook, putting it into Sleep mode with RM6 running. When I restarted it there was a media access error and I had to forcefully reboot the MacBoot to get everything working again. I then ran a database integrity check and found about seven problems, which were cleared up by running the repair option. However, now I'm afraid to re-merge the database from the flash drive back onto my main PC for fear that something might have been lost.
Q: Has anyone ever experienced data loss from repairing a RM6 database?
Word to the wise: Always do a backup when you close a RM-to-go database, even if it's to the same flash drive that the database lives on.
