Fixing Corrupted Databases

Introduction

 
As a Cloud Architect, I help my clients migrate from on-premises to cloud and most of the time it’s the database that causes the issues. The issues happen due to corrupted backup files or corrupted databases during migration. After spending countless hours on these issues, I stumbled upon Stellar MS repair for MS SQL. After researching about it, I found out that it's recommended by DB Administrators. I found out a few of the commands like CHECKDB Command and REPAIR_REBUILD command but the property that worried us was we could scan the entire database and verify it from the available preview.
 
This SQL Recovery software offers a complete solution for recovering all database components including tables, triggers, indexes, keys, rules, stored procedures and the ROW and PAGE compressed data.
 
The entire database is recovered in the original format and reduced the stress level involved in searching and learning database corruption.
 
We can download Stellar Repair for MS SQL and analyze the database for free before investing.
 
A summary or log of all the activities is also available to analyze the complete repair-process.

  • We could preview all Tables and other database objects and validate the items. The software displayed the entire contents of the recovered database including T-SQL code for the function.
We were quite happy with the performance and the time it saved, so I went ahead and brought a license and activated my copy.
