Getting a database to restore - error 3241
Posted on 2008-06-12
i have an important database that was hosted from a server in a datacenter, we were having problems with the machine so sql on it was backup up and it was reformatted. When we got it back online it appears something is wrong with the sql backup and it now wont restore. The only backup we have that works is over 6 days old, is there anyway to get it to work?
I read somewhere that it may be to do with the transaction logs, and you can get it to work by restoring it to the MSDE 2000 rather than sql 2000 server. However i cant seem to manage to connect to the MSDE.
Any help fixing this would be appreciated.
