Hello, I have lost my Operating System.  I had to reinstall everything including MySQL.  No matter what I do , i can't get the ibdata1 file to open or to sinc up with the database.  I need to figure out a way that I can recover the information data that I have the file.  I once did get MySQL to sync up to it, however one of the myisam tables would not load.

Are there any utilities that would allow me to back up the content in this ibdata1 file?  Then i could use that to restore to a new database...

Bill.

What are the error messages that you see in the error log?

for myisam tables. Do a check table <tablename> and repairing the table should resolve in most cases.

If you have a backup of the database before the crash restoring it would be your best option.

then why do you say that "from my file system, i have the file, however i can't get it working with mysql any longer."

are you able to logon to mysql and use the database?

I note that you mention you could get the ibdata1 file working, with the exception of one of your myisam tables, these are not actually stored in this file - only innodb tables are.
