I have a sql 2000 database that has been made suspect by having the log file deleted then replaced with an older copy. This is what happened. The database went into readonly mode because the log file had gotten so big it filled the volume. Well my programmer deleted the log file thinking he could just put in an empty dummy in its place. As you know this would not work so he restored a log file that was on a 3 day old backup. This made the database suspect. I have detached the database at this time and it won't reattach. Any suggestions?
