DataNumen has releasedDataNumen SQL Recoveryversion 2.3, a Windows application that repairs corrupted or damaged .MDF and .NDF files created by Microsoft SQL Server and similar software products. Improvements in version 2.3 include recovery of SQL Server data from most of the popular virtual machine disk files, backup files and disk image files, such as VMWare VMDK(Virtual Machine Disk) files(.vmdk), Windows NTBackup files(.bkf) and ISO image files(.iso).
Microsoft´s SQL Server software includes several tools to prevent data corruption, including snapshot replication, transactional replication, AlwaysOn Availability Groups, failover clustering, and database mirroring. Sometimes, however, Microsoft´s built-in utilities are not able to prevent .MDF files and their associated .NDF files from becoming corrupt. Using advanced proprietary technologies to scan the damaged database files DataNumen SQL Recovery recovers as many files as possible and minimizes data loss.
Unlike most data recovery software, the free trial version of DataNumen SQL Recovery is a fully functional version without any limitations. It will scan the damaged .MDF and .NDF files and output exactly the data that it can recover. Before purchasing the SQL recovery software, users will be able to access all of the recovered contents in the output file. In addition, DataNumen will refund a customer´s order if any competitive SQL data recovery program can recover more data than DataNumen SQL Recovery. The software works with all modern versions of SQL files, including files created by SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2014.
The software repairs both the structure and data in the SQL tables. With the exception of XML data, DataNumen SQL Recovery repairs all aspects of a damaged SQL database. The application recovers sparse columns, deleted records, and SQL files as large as 16TB. In addition to creating databases in .MDF format, the software can also create a plain text file containing SQL statements that can reconstruct the database.
Registered users can run the software in batch mode to fix any number of damaged SQL files. DataNumen SQL Recovery works with modern drives as well as older media such as CDROMs, floppy disks, and Zip disks.
Database administrators and law enforcement officials use DataNumen SQL Recovery as a forensic tool to identify and repair damaged SQL files.
The software is fully integrated with the Windows Explorer context (right-click) menu, allowing users to initiate the repair process quickly and easily. Drag and drop operations are also supported.
