Supect Corrupt ACT Database
Posted on 2010-01-13
A nasty crash yesterday has, i think, corrupted our ADF File. After going into ACTDIAG and attempting the standard repair routes and getting nowhere, it appears that the database has been marked as "suspect". Running through guidance on the ACT support site I deleted the database through DIAG and reloaded the ADF file through ACT itself. It started trying to verify the database but failed every time.
I have read a very similar post recently on EE with really no answer other than restore from a backup. We do have a back up luckily, but it would mean sacrificing quite a bit of data which obviously is a last case scenario.
Has anyone solved an issue like this, if so what steps are possible? I have read it is possible to load the ADF file into MS SQL and access the tables and information that way.
I have a nasty feeling that it is probably good bye ADF file or a case of sending it to ACT USA and seeing if it can be repaired.
Thanks in advance,
