How to recover .BAK files?
Posted on 2009-06-29
I'm in deep yogurt here. My MS SQL server was set to keep 2 weeks of backups and we just recently had a big problem that requires us to restore, but somehow the amount of time to keep those files got reset to 2 days!
The only recourse that I think I have is to do file recovery but I can't find a good file recovery program that supports .BAK files. Apparently all the file recovery programs need to be programmed with certain file types in order to properly work. Can someone help me out with what to use for SQL .BAK backup files?
