I am constantly getting the following error on one of my databases. This database drives a backup solution. The clients have been hanging during their backups since this error has started to occur. I am not sure how to solve it or where to begin so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Error: 823, Severity: 24, State: 2
I/O error (bad page ID) detected during read at offset 0x0000023d1a0000 in file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\directory.mdf'.

Thank you,

Keith Hall

Hi Keith,

Sounds like your clients hard drive is going bad.  Check out the following article from Microsoft.

I don't really think that MS link will help, but let me explain what SQL means by (bad page ID). page recides in extent and every single record that you add it is kept in the page, so extent contains 8 pages if one of these page is damaged there is no way of repairing that database, but you can try

DBCC CHECKDB
    ( 'database_name'
            [ , NOINDEX
                | { REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS
                    | REPAIR_FAST
                    | REPAIR_REBUILD
                    } ]
    )    [ WITH { [ ALL_ERRORMSGS ]
                    [ , [ NO_INFOMSGS ] ]
                    [ , [ TABLOCK ] ]
                    [ , [ ESTIMATEONLY ] ]
                    [ , [ PHYSICAL_ONLY ] ]
                    }
        ]

for more info open "SQL Server Book Online" and search for "DBCC CHECKDB"

I agree with davidlars99.  Harddrive going bad could be a possibility, but I think it's probably not the case.

Be careful with CHECKDB, you can destroy what you do have using the rebuild options.  Do you have a good backup at all?  If not, I would suggestion you trying to export the data first (using DTS or insert into queries) before you do a CHECKDb....

Unfortunately I ended up restoring from a backup. The database was on a failed hard drive and was too far gone to be repaired. Please split the points amongst all participants. Thank you.
