 I'm fairly new to Epidata and have a couple of questions:
  1  In the file manager, the check file I've created has "recovered file fragments" as the file type.  Is that correct?
  2  I've discovered I need to delete a number of variables from the  data file.  This seems straightforward since I can simply delete  them from the .qes file and they will be deleted from the .rec  file.  What happens to the .chk file when I open the new .rec file  with deleted variables?  Will Epidata revise the .chk file by  deleting the checks for variables that no longer exist?
  Many thanks for any help.
