Thanks I have tried everything in this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826418.

I was hoping there was some tool I could use. Not send the file away. We do have a backup of the file but our restore process is very time consuming.

Hi sk_raja_raja,

I think you should post tools that you have tried successfully.
It's better than trying to list tools that everybody can Google.

Regrds,
