One day, I found My Database 'Library' was Suspected". The Database can not work any more now.
Why? I have do something wrong? How to repair it?
The System Log told me : "Database 'Library' can not be opened - It has been marked SUSPECT by recovery. The SA can drop the database with DBCC"

... But I don't want to Drop the Database, I want it to work... How to Repair it? Use "DBCC Repair" ?

Oh, Why did it happened to me?

Database was corrupted for some reason. Database is marked suspect, beacause SQL server is probably trying to recover it from transaction log. You can try the following : wait until it is recovered. (SEE Q170115 'How to troubleshoot long recovery on databases.) You can try resetting suspect status back to normal using 'sp_resetstatus' If it didn't help reset it back sp_marksuspect. IF you still can't use DB  you will have to DROP it and recreate from the last backup.

I have use the DBCC to 'Repair' it, and found 'Repair' means 'Drop' in MS SQL.
Thank you, I will try your way in the next time.
