How to Recover Tally Data some Tips and Tricks
Recover Tally Data

We have to first see why data has got corrupted. The ways to recover Tally data depends on reason it gets corrupted. Here are some tips and tricks which can save you the day. First of all lets see different reasons which can cause data corruption

Why Tally data gets corrupted ?
The reason could be anyone of following :-

  1. While working on Tally power goes off and UPS is unable to give you backup. Next time you would open your Tally company in which you were working would get corrupted.
  2. The computer on which you were working is not operative and OS is not working properly. Somebody formatted it !!
  3. You have taken so many backups by copying the Tally folder in so many placed that you forgot which was to original one.
  4. You have taken a backup and when you try to restore it your data is washed out.

Solutions to recover Tally data
Solutions to these problems needs common sense rather than Tally expertise. Lets understand some feature and working of Tally. Tally provides a backup and restore utility which collects all files of Tally company into one file named tbk500.001. This way of Tally backup is easier to restore as this one file can be kept safe and easily can be restored instead of all files in that folder. It is easy to be mailed or copied. In other case if any of the file gets missing or gets corrupted tally data wouldn't work. So it is better to take Tally backup from within Tally Software.

In first case when data gets corrupted while working on tally and we are unable to open the company then data can simply rewritten. Come to Company selection menu. Press "Ctrl + Alt + R". Now select the company for re writing. 90% chances are that your problem would be get solved.

In second case when OS system is not working then to recover data you need computer skills and some common sense solutions can get you out of this problem. If windows is not loading then you can try to boot the system in DOS mode. Copy all T

ally folders and data folders into D drive. If DOS mode is also not working then take out the HDD and connect it with other computer with OS system and try to open it. If the disk is ok and without bad sectors then you would be able to open the Tally folder. If still it is not working then before formatting give it a try with some recovery software or ask your computer hardware expert to recover data folders from drive.

The third case happens when people are running so many versions of tally and all versions work on different directories. More over they take backup by copying folders of data directory instead of taking backup from Tally itself. In that case you too can get confused which one is latest and which folder is needed to be restored. In this case just remember the No. of your company in Tally. For example if your company No. is 006 then go to search utility of windows and enter 006 in search box and begin search. You would see the list of folders. Now in see the locations of each folder and see the date of last modified or accessed. Choose the latest one and copy that folder in Tally's current data directory. You would probably find the right one. 
 One more method can be that you look for folder which has largest amount of data. Just go to each folder right click on the name and select properties. Here you would find the total file size of that folder. The biggest folder would be the current folder as it contains latest Tally data.

The fourth case happens when you have created so many companies and when you restore the data that current company is not in your older data. This can also happen when data backup you have taken is already corrupted. In this case there is no solutions except you find some other backup which you have taken fortunately and which is good as well. To do some once again you can use search utility and look out for files names as tbk500.001 or what you can do is just type tbk*.*. It would get you all the files on your computer.

Some healthy tips can also save you the day.
  • Take backup on regular basis make it a habit to take backup when ever you have done enough work. The frequency of backup always depends on how much work you do one daily basis or how much work you can afford to do again!!
  • Take backup on the basis of name of days or name of month. If data is high then the backup destination can be like this d:\tallybackup\Monday or d:\tallybackup\Tuesday and so on. In this way you would get seven backups and all backups cannot be corrupted. If data volume is low then backup can be taken as d:\tallybackup\June if you can afford to do one months task in a single streach.
  • Try to make minimum companies. It would save you lots of hassles.
  • There should be only one Tally version and one Tally folder. Too many versions and folders multiplies your work. If you are two versions then try to sum up work in latest version as soon as possible.
  • There must be proper power backup while working on tally. In network environment is a must on all nodes where tally is working.
I hope these solutions can work for you. Your comments and rectifications are invited.

I have a problem with tally 5.4. Please try help me.

Recently, by mistake, I deleted some files from tally data folder. When I tried to restore the data from my backup, I selected another company (the second accident). Now problem is, I have no backup of second company. Is there is any way to restore the second company files (the over written files)??? Even with any third party software.???

Please, I need your help in this regard.

Thanks in Anticipation

Once your company data is overwritten then it is impossible to retrive data as the data is overwritten.
The only way is to do the rest of the entries again as there is no backup of the latest company with you.

Tips to recover scratched CDs
Don't you feel like crying every time you add another disc to your pile of scratched discs. Trashing that disc which contained your favourite songs, pics, files, games or videos is not easy.

Read-on, if you find yourself wishing for a miracle every time your fav CD is scratched:
Home Remedy :
here's an easy home remedy, which might give you the desired results. Rub a small amount of toothpaste on the scratch and polish the CD with a soft cloth and any petroleum-based polishing solution (like clear shoe polish). Squirt a drop of Brasso and wipe it with a clean cloth.
Technology to the rescue
There are many softwares available on the net, which enable the recovery of the CD data. BadCopy Pro is one such software, which can be used to recover destroyed data and files from a range of media.

Just a few clicks is all it requires to recover the disc from almost all kind of damage situation; be it corrupted, lost data, unreadable or defective.
DiskDoctors is another popular company, which offers both software and solutions to recover data from a scratched CDs and DVDs.
General Tips:
* Always wipe the CD from the center outward with stratight spoke-like strokes. Wiping CDs in circles will create more scratches.

* Do not scratch the graphics layer as you cannot repair the disc. HINT: Hold the disc up to a light with the graphics layer facing the light source. If you can see light thru the scratches at any point then the disc may be irreparable and or exhibit loading or playing errors.

* Clean your Disc players lens regularly with a suitable product to ensure optimal viewing pleasure.

* Make sure to use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean both sides of the disc. Wipe in a straight line from the centre of the disc to the outer edge.

* If wiping with a cloth does not remove a fingerprint or smudge, use a specialized DVD disc polishing spray to clean the disc.

* Only handle the disc by its outer edge and the empty hole in the middle. This will help prevent fingerprints, smudges or scratches.
*Fingermarks/ prints cause 43% of disc problems!
* General wear & tear causes 25% of disc problems!
* Player-related issues cause 15% of disc problems!
* User-related issues cause 12% of disc problems!
* PlayStation 2 machine scratches cause 3% of disc problems!
* Laser rot (a manufacturer error) causes 2% of disc problems!
Thanks & Best Wishes

I had problem with tally 4.5. My hard disk crashed and i could not take backup by backup command of tally. I had copied the 'data' directory of tally on separate hard disk, but now as Window ver is changed and has become Win XP I cant run tally4.5 on my system and so i am not able to restore my data. How can I restore the data if i use higher ver of tally?

TallyHelper said...

convert the data to 5.4 first by 5.4 conversion utility shown in download section on the right hand pane.
then open that data in tally 7.2 version.
use 7.2 migration utility just below the link and convert it in tally 9.
As a whole you need only two utility and one tally 7.2 version. then you can continue using tally 9 said...

I Have a backup of my tally 7.2 data on a cd . I have restored the Numbered folders in "data" Directory . But now i cant open one accont there are 11 accounts and i cant open one which is actually the most important . when i press F1 to select the company and when the company is slected i get a error " Error in opening the company" and tally 7.2 then ask me to set the directory
please help

Tally Helper says
while we copy some files from CD to any folder in computer their attribute changes to read only. Tally gets problem in reading and modifying read only file. So first we have to remove read only by right clicking the company folder and removing read only tick in properties of the folder.
If it still doesn't work then rewrite the file again.

i am working on tally 5.4.The voucher entry tab did not open today.some error message also appeared.
So i pressed ctrl+alt+r in order to rewrite it.
next time i started tally , i found that i was able to make entries through voucher entry tab but some of my entries got deleted.
Now the problem is i dont have a backup of the last time i worked on it.
Please help. is there any solution by which i can retrieve the lost data?

My company data is corrupted

i am using tally 9 v 1.0

my company is not showing in select company option of tally, but it is in data folder.

i have tried ctr+alt+r, it is not working. is there any other way,

plz help me


Arun said...

In company list my company is not showing. when i look in the data folder the folder exists but in tally its not shows. Any idea about this?

Anonymous said...


I have the same problem which Arun and Chirag are Facing.

My Dad's Office computer has Windows 98 in it and he is using Tally 5.4

A few days ago the computer's motherboard had gone bad and they replaced the motherboard but after that one of the company's name is not listed in the Tally's Index or the Select a Company Menu in Tally. However, I checked and the folder for that company does exists.

I tried various ways to try and recover that company but none of them worked.

I Tried using Ctrl+Alt+R but the company's name is not listed in that list as well. I then tried to move the folder into Tally 7.2 and that did not work as well. I also tried and created a new company withthe same name and moved the files from the old folder to the new one but no results.

Please Help ne on this.

Thanks in Advance.

It seems that your hard disk is also replaced or formatted.
As you said the company folder exists then it should be in data directory and it should be numbered as 001 or 002 etc. make sure you mention the correct path.
Check if it is not named or renamed.
If the folder is there and still not listed then may be the contents of the folder are changed.
Lastly you can retrieve from backup if any.
Otherwise there seems no way.

I am using TallyGold 9 and use Cost Centres. I had moved certain data from Cost Centres to Ledger accounts and then I wanted to do more such operations. For this purpose, I followed this path:-

Display > State of Accounts > Cost Centres > Category Summary

At this point, Tally shows an error screen that says:-

Exiting TALLY!
Internal Error. Contact Tally Solutions.
Software Exception c000005
(Memory Access Violation)

On pressing Enter, Tally exits.

Please guide what to do. I am scared of using Tally any more for the fear of losing further work.

Thanks for help.

Hello Sir, I use Tally 7.2 and someone came in and messed up the company computers somehow. You're help has been very vital in restoring a lot of my work, however now Tally does not print. It wont recognize a printer and the printer works fine. I have used it to print other programs. Even when you click the 'Select printer' button it does not help. Is there a solution to this?

Why doesn't data transfer from pirated to licensed tally sync? I mean to say that two people one working on licensed tally and other on pirated one, they can't send data to each other.. why is that? and how can the problem be solved?

Anonymous said...

hi everyone,

recently my data on tally was accidentally deleted but when trying to recover it, we cant find any data on specific dates but i have recovered the very old data which we don't need it.

any help is highly appreciated!

i have lost my last five year data in tally so how can i see in tally 7.2 data





Shailendra Yadav said...

You have to surrender it first and then reactivate it. use control center to surrender your tally.

Shailendra Yadav said...

Data from same version of tally can be exchanged. If you are facing such problem then the versions and releases of both tally would be different. Check out. The version of pirated tally is always older and the original tally is latest.

Shailendra Yadav said...

Try re writing the data.
