I`ve got a trouble. I use FoxPro 3.0 and have a lot of data damaged by the virus. Mostly .dbf format suffered. I cleaned the virus but those files are no longer readable or even openable. How can I recover them? There MUST be a way!I`ve got a trouble. I use FoxPro 3.0 and have a lot of data damaged by the virus. Mostly .dbf format suffered.

  If you do not have any recent data files/folders or data partition image [restorable] backups, then I know of no easy way whatsoever.  I used to use FoxPro [DOS-version], and I'm familiar with DBF files [they are a form of text-files on steroids].  Short of an incredibly expensive process of having someone in the DBF-construction-know rebuild each and every DBF, one by one by one, there is no easy solution -- unless you want to try to rebuild each and every DBF file one by one by one, again, I know of no easy solution.
