Using DataNumen Access Repair to Recover Corrupt Access Databases


When your Microsoft Access databases (.mdb or .accdb files) are corrupt or damaged and you cannot open them normally, you can use DataNumen Access Repair to scan the files and recover the data from them as much as possible.

Step 1

Start DataNumen Access Repair.

DataNumen Access Repair

  Note: Before recovering any corrupt or damaged Access mdb/accdb file with DataNumen Access Repair, please close Microsoft Access and any other applications that may modify the mdb/accdb file.
Step 2
Select the corrupt or damaged Access mdb/accdb file to be repaired:
Select MDB File to be Repaired

You can input the mdb/accdb filename directly or click the Browse for Source MDB File button to browse and select the file.

Step 3
By default, DataNumen Access Repair will save the fixed Access database into a new file named xxxx_fixed.mdb, where xxxx is the name of the source mdb/accdb file. For example, for file Damaged.mdb , the default name for the fixed file will be Damaged_fixed.mdb. If you want to use another name, then please select or set it accordingly:
Select Fixed File Name

You can input the fixed file name directly or click the Browse for Destination MDB File button to browse and select the fixed file.

Step 4

Click the "Start Repair" button, and DataNumen Access Repair will start scanning and repairing the source mdb/accdb file. Progress bar Process Bar will indicate the repair progress.

After the repair process, if the source mdb/accdb database can be repaired successfully, you will see a message box like this:
