I recently had a hard drive failure by developing bad sectors. I couldn’t access the hard drive so I used a program that can recover data from a damaged hard drive () once extracted I burnt all the files to DVDs and formatted the drive.

Problem is im getting CRC errors when trying to open some of the files, I don’t know how much files are like this as ive only been trying to get some important database files just now. The database is part of Office XP professional and it has all my customer details on it. Could somebody suggest a way of repairing this database it’s important, it also won’t let me copy the files either.

Could try making a new db and linking to it (File / Get External Data/ import or Link)

Wouldn't hold my breath though....
