Pervasive SQL 8 Database recovery from Log files

aznxbandit asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
My pervasive SQL 8 server hard drive crashed yesterday (June 11, 2006). I made a system backup back in May 22nd 2006. I successfuly restored the system from the backup but the transactions between May 23rd and Yesterday are gone.

I did a disk recovery of the failed hard drive but the only data successfully recovered were the Log Files in the PVSW\Bin\MDKE\Log directory. Are these the transaction logs? If so, can I use these logfiles to restore the lost data and commit them to the database? Any help is much appreciated.
