Hello All,

I'm attempting to attach a database and receiving error 3456: could not redo log record.  

The computer that this database is stored on locked up during an update.  I detached the database and now it won't re-attach it.  I believe that the database has gotten corrupted, but I don't know what my options are?

Any help?

Thanks,

Ben

Thanks guys.  The first response fixed my issue, but the second contained some great info to help me in the future and fix it further, so I split the points accordingly.

Thanks again to the both of you!
