So there is an apparent problem with my Mac and Microsoft software. For the past week, I have gotten the error message to rebuild my database. I can click cancel or rebuild. If I click cancel, the message pops up again in 10 seconds. If I click rebuild, my Mac shuts down. I have taken my laptop to Geek Squad and to the Apple store. The apple store advised me that I may have to submit the database folder to Microsoft (a 20 gig folder) and they would repair it and send it back to me. I don't see anywhere on the Internet to try this.
Has anyone on the forums run into this problem? I have a Time Machine and I have done a restore from weeks back and yet this problem is still occurring. I can't wipe the laptop and start anew because I need the files, documents, etc. that are on the laptop.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
