Indexed File Recovery (recover1) utility

The recover1 utility recovers data stored in an RM/COBOL indexed file . It is a standalone program; that is, it does not require use of the Runtime Command to be executed.

  • Unless specifically stated otherwise, the name recover1 refers to both the UNIX (recover1) and Windows (recover1.exe) versions of the recover1 program.
  • If the output window of the Windows version of the recover1 program disappears upon successful completion and you want that window to remain visible, set the Persistent property to True for the recover1 program.
  • The recover1 utility does not use the environment variable RUNPATH to locate files. It is best to specify the full pathname of the indexed file to be recovered or to run recover1 from the current directory in which the indexed file resides.
