Avoiding Data Loss in NewFile

I've found that performing the following procedures before I close or exit a NewFile document helps avoid corrupt files and keeps my data intact:

  1. unmark all records, no records should be marked, and
  2. show ALL records (don't show only marked), and
  3. sort the database document. Use any sort order you want, but sort it.

Of course, frequent and sequential backups are essential when dealing with important data.
