SysTools – SQL Recovery – The Apt Solution for Recovering Microsoft SQL Server Database


Recover Corrupt MDF & NDF SQL Server Database & Export into SQL Server Database

SQL Server is a relational database that is used for storing the information that can be retrieved by their applications when needed. The SQL database is comprised of three files-MDF, NDF and LDF. While the MDF and LDF files store the complete data of SQL server, LDF file stores the log of the transactions that have been performed in SQL server.

However, similar to other databases, the SQL server database is also prone to corruption. The reasons for the database corruption can be many, but the ultimate result is the inaccessibility of the data residing within the database. There are many third party applications available in the market, which facilitate the users to recover the SQL database.

In this article, we have shortlisted two such solutions for you.
