How to repair corrupt SharePoint Database & Site Content using Software?

Author : Creative Team Updated on March 5, 2013

Stellar Phoenix SharePoint Server Recovery incorporates two major recovery options:

  'Complete Repair': This feature facilitates complete recovery of the corrupt databases created for MS SharePoint Server and enables you to restore all recovered data to a new database (MDF File). The software extensively scans the entire database to extract every piece of valuable user information. The competent tool shows the preview of each item, such as tables, website content, articles, blogs, etc. before actual recovery.

  'Document Recovery': This feature is specifically intended to retrieve different types of SharePoint website documents, such as wikis, blogs, articles, etc. This option can be used to save your valuable time when you do not require repairing and restoring the complete MDF file.

The procedure to perform 'Complete Repair' of a corrupt MDF File is described below:

 Start  Stellar Phoenix SharePoint Server Recovery. On the main screen, click 'Complete Repair'.

 Click 'Select Files' to select the MDF file to repair. You can click 'Search File' to search for MDF files in any particular drive or volume. The path of the chosen file appears in the 'Selected File Path' text box. Click 'Scan' to initiate the scan process.

 When the scan is completed, a list of all recoverable SharePoint Server tables appears in the left pane. You can click a particular table to preview it in the right pane.

 Now, click 'Repair' button at the bottom to begin the repair process.

 Provide your SQL Server name/Instance name and the destination path for saving the recovered database.

 When the process is completed, a dialog box appears displaying the message: 'Recovery Process Successfully Completed'. Click 'OK'.

 A dialog box appears asking you to attach this database to your web application now. Click 'Yes'. The software will safely attach the MDF file to your web application.
