A SQL Server failed that hosted a SQL 6.5 database. We performed a backup of the database using the built in backup tools within SQL 6.5. File is a .DAT file. The orginial MASTER database was corrupted when the server failed and now I cant get the backed up .DAT file to restore to another SQL 6.5 or newer database. Used a demo software, Recovery for SQL Server 3.0, to look at .DAT files data and it was intact, but dont want to spend the $500.00 for the program. What is the best way to attach the .DAT file to a newer SQL instance and export the data?
