It is not the files’ timestamps - NAV-database has [kind of] a timestamp “inside”.

Are you running on a server? With a service? If: Did you stop the service before copying the database2-file? If not, you probably have to restore a backup…

Unfortunately Anfinnur is probably correct. You really shouldn’t do stuff like this without workign with your Navision partner, who would have warned you of the dangers of file manipulation with Navision Databases. There are a numebr of things that could have caused this, but the only one you can likely recover from is if you copied the wrong files, AND you have a copy of the original files AND you know exactly which one is which AND you can put them back in the right place.

Even C/DART won’t recover form this error, so you really need to stat thinking of how to recover the backup.
