When to Use Stellar Repair for MS SQL?

Is SQL Database in SUSPECT Mode?  

When the primary filegroup of a database is suspected to be damaged by SQL server or transaction log file is missing or has turned corrupt, the database is marked as 'Suspect'. Also, events such as SQL server crash in the middle of a transaction, abrupt database termination, lack of disk space, etc., can bring the database in suspect mode. Consequently, database becomes inaccessible. The Stellar SQL recovery tool helps recover SQL database from suspect mode and restores SQL database to a normal state (online).

Need to Recover SQL Database from Corrupt Backup?

Events like database corruption, server crash, or hardware failure make the database corrupt and inaccessible. In this case, you can restore the recent backup to recover the SQL database. However, you may fail to recover the database if the backup (.bak) file is corrupt. Inability to restore the backup increases risk of losing mission-critical data. Use Stellar for MS SQL Technician to extract data from the corrupt backup file.

The SQL data recovery tool earlier known as Stellar Phoenix SQL Database Repair provides two scan options – Standard Scan and Advanced Scan for effortless database recovery.

Selective Recovery of SQL Objects

After previewing the data, you can choose specific objects you want to recover. This helps avoid saving unnecessary items to a New Database, Live Database, or Other Formats (like CSV, HTML, and XLS).

Search Items & Reconnect Automatically

This is a useful feature as it helps resume the file repair process without scanning the database MDF file again, thus saving time..

Multiple Saving Options

Multiple Saving Options

The SQL database recovery software allows saving the recovered data into a New Database, Live Database, or Other File Formats. The other file formats include CSV, HTML, and XLS.
