Using DataNumen Access Repair to Recover Damaged Access Databases


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

Step 1 Start DataNumen Access Repair.
  Note: Before recovering any damaged or corrupt Access mdb file with DataNumen Access Repair, please close Microsoft Access and any other applications that may modify the mdb file.
Step 2
Select the damaged or corrupt Access mdb file to be repaired:
Select MDB File to be Repaired

You can input the mdb 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 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 file. Progress bar Process Bar will indicate the repair progress.

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

Step 5 Now you can open the fixed mdb database with Microsoft Access or other applications.

Note: The demo version will display the following message box to show the success of the recovery:

where you can click the "Show Recovery Report" button to see a detailed report of all the tables, fields, records, relationships and other objects recovered, like this:

But the demo version will not output the fixed file. Please order the full version to get the fixed file.
