Hi People,

I have a corrupted file in the MDB Attachments folder.  This is a leaf page so i will have data loss.

I have tried to restore from a recent backup and then roll forward on my backups.  but this wont work as someone in the depatment screwed the backups up.... (damn them)

The next option was to discard the bad page from the database.

useing the esefile /c switch

Then useing the Esutil.exe /P switch to run a repair on the database.  (to remove the damaged files.)

This didnt work....
Is there anyway to find out exactly which file this is, then just delete the offending file....
