Re: Shared file and Meta file

There's a chance of .shared file getting corrupted. We have faced this. As a best practice, these files need to be backed up every day or at-least at regular intervals. One reason of .shared file getting corrupted is because of the size of the shared file. You can still use Server Object Handler and see if a particular object/chart is corrupted and you can remove it.
