Might I suggest you make a folder in the My Documents folder and move your Genbox database files to that location. I believe there is a location (in Preferences probably) to set where Genbox can find your data. (Sorry, I am writing from work so do not have Genbox available to check for an exact location.) Once you move your data out of the root directory compression and data checks (options on the File menu) should be easier.
Concerning Russian for help and manual, I note that Bill lists Russian as a language available for the interface, so at least that information is available. Translation of customer information (help and manuals) tends to be much slower simply because there is more information to translate. (The large company where I work is always screaming about translation costs and time, with months required to translate the help system and customer documents.)
