How to recover MDF database files

When database files become lost or corrupted, this can create quite a problem for those relying on these unique and typically large types of files. This most commonly happens when one improperly shuts down a computer, loses an internet connection as a file is uploaded or worked with, improper database updates, or because of viruses. With so many large files in a database, recovering this data can get difficult.

Master Database Files can be recovered and repaired, however. One of the easiest ways to recover and repair these files is through SQL recovery. DataNumen SQL Recovery is a powerful software that scans for MDF files and corresponding NDF files—a secondary file type for SQL data that are associated with MDF files. This mdf database repair tool can recover as much data as possible, leaving you with the least amount of lost files and a sigh of relief.

First, the administrator of the database must start SQL recovery. You will want make sure there are not any programs open that may affect MDF files. Using an easy drag and drop, browse, or input function, you can select files that you wish to recover. Your files will be saved in a new file with “fixed” in the title. Simply press ‘start repair’ and watch as a progress bar shows the software at work scanning and repairing the file. This new fixed file can be opened with MDF utilities such as WinMDF.
