Cannot open company file...A required data file is missing. Check your data directory to be sure files are there...

Good day guys,

I am using the 2018 version of Sage 50 and everything was working fine and now that I am trying to open the company file I am getting the above error message.  I checked the directory the file seems to be there but for some reason it is not opening and now I am going into panic mode because the company file nor the back up file is opening.

Can you help?
