When trying to open db, system says "database is corrupt, cannot allocate space"
Unfortunately we do not have a valid backup tape for restore, so I need to fix the mailfiles asap. Specially the one of my boss.....

Can anyone help ?
Fixup
Compact

Does this happen on any other machine ??

Sometimes it could be related to your local desktop/cache/bookmark file corruption.

2 options that you can try is..
1. Restore it from a replica
2. Create a new copy

Replica's are not available....

Anne, I am afraid if you can recover.. this for sure  is unrecoverable data corruption. Sorry.

You can see many threads here and notes.net unanswered or no final soln attained. I wish I could have helped you better.
