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
