Hello.... don't know if anyone can help me out here (although I suspect I am screwed)???

Recently attempted to run Money and it reported the following error:

'Money has detected that you did not close file 'XXXX' before exiting.

Money now needs to verify the information in your file. If your file is large, this make take a few minutes. Do you want to do this now? If you click NO, you will need to open a different Money file'.

When I select 'Yes', it reports 'The password you entered was incorrect, please try again' (even though I know I entered the correct password.

I have tried running the backup file and that is reported as a non-money file or corrupt.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might recover the data?? Any suggestions very much appreciated.
