Unfortunately no. I've been through the same situation you seem to be having with corruption of the database file(apparently from compression that failed). Many people confuse the data entry errors for which you can check, vs. corruption of the database file. Those two topics are not the same.

As one individual wrote, I ended up having to re-import a FTM GEDCOM into another software to run database check, fixing 44 broken or bad linkages following the compression failures. At this point, I keep an FTM file for Ancestry searching, but keep my genealogy in a different software.
