access database crashes ...

I have Microsoft Office 2010 32 bit installed on Microsoft Windows 7 Prof 64 bit the database is accdb. Recently (one week or so ) I have started experiencing database corruption error: I cannot open any form , report or vba module, tables are still accessible though ,most of the linked anyway to SQLDB. So I had to create back up every one hour otherwise I have to redo all the work all other again. I have tried to create the new empty file and import everything from the backup and apply all the changes but after one day or so it is happening again! So it goes like that: I restore it from the backup, apply changes , all good, but as soon as I close it to create another back up and open again it already corrupted.

Backup and Restore Process In Microsoft Access 2010

Performing regular backups is the best strategy against any type of data disaster. There is no definitive solution to avert data loss, however, backups are a medium to save business downtime if you anyhow happen to lose this vital asset. MS Access users also suffer from data loss due to intermittent corruption encountered in Access databases. If you have a backup of your database, it could save you precious time that would have been otherwise wasted in rebuilding the entire database from scratch.

Database backup automation

my database collapsed the other night and after putting together a backup file a bit old and a more recent excel extraction I could retrieve 98% of it.

I use this databse everyday, 10 hours a week, is there a way to schedule an automatic backup at a given frequency (every week for example) in a given folder?

Can we also automate a maintainance run (compact and repair) each time I close access

Restore a database

To restore a database, you must already have a backup copy of your database.
A backup is commonly referred to as a "known good copy" of a database file — a copy in which you are confident of its data integrity and design. You should use the Back Up Database command in Microsoft Office Access to make backups, but you can use any known good copy to restore a database. For example, you can restore a database from a copy that is stored on a USB external backup device.
You can restore an entire database, or you can selectively restore objects in a database.
If you do not have a backup copy, you risk data loss and unwanted changes to or corruption of your database design. For this reason, you should make backups on a regular basis.

Automatic backup?

I am relatively new to Access 2007. During the development, occasionally I find a backup file on my drive "Name_of_DB"_Backup.accdb.

What are the criteria for the thing making a backup by itself? I think I got one or two after crashing Access, but also without a crash. Is there some obscure setting? For I most certainly did not create those backups myself.

2007 Access file cannot be opened in 2010 Access

I have this Access file that was created in Access 2003 version. I saved a backup copy on a thumb drive and I cannot get it to open in my 2010 version of Access. It opens in 2007, 2003 versions, but won't open on my laptop, which is a 2010 version.

The error message reads: Your MS Access database or project contains a missing or broken reference to the file 'MSCAL.OCX' version 7.0

To ensure that your database or project works properly, you must fix this reference.

Again, it openes on other computers, just not this one. So, there is no problem with the file itself. It is a problem with this laptop, or this MS Access 2010.

Error Opening Access

When deleting a form, Access crashed. When I reopened it, I received the following error message:
The database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained in it cannot be read. The database can be opened only if the VBA project is first deleted. Deleting the VBA project removes all code from modules, forms and reports. You should back up your database before attempting to open the database and delete the VBA Project.
To create a backup copy, click Cancel and then make a backup copy of your database. To open the database and delete the VBA project without creating a backup copy, click OK.
