Hi Ahmed,

You can download & install the software on PC. Detach your mdf file from SQL server; copy to the PC. Now repair the detached file with Stellar SQL database repair software. Software will fix all the issues and provides option to save repaired database.

Now, you can attach the repaired file to the server.

Please let me know if you have any further queries.
