Having multiple errors with one .sdf file. Anyone know how to repair or recover the file ? All other drawing with .sdf's and .shp file seem to be working fine. Ran a drawing recovery twice, no errors. Re-installed AutoCAD, no difference. Some examples of the errors are:


-When I add a single new feature within an existing .sdf connection it will create as many as six identical features one on top of another.

-When I edit contents within the data table it will not let me save the .sdf file.

-Normally mapcheckinall has lots of errors in it when I run this.


Do not know what is wrong or how to fix it. I am also unable to load the associated .layer file. It will fatal error every time I try.
