Here is the situation.

One of our databases was corrupted. We were running nightly backups of the database.
But we do not have sufficient capacity to run Tranaction log backups.

Our Db backups from the past 3 nights were not able to be restored (I assume the corrupted DB was backed up each night).

I was able to restore to our DB backup from 4 days ago. Next step is to utilise transaction logs to bring the content back up to where is was last night.

I understand that without nightly transaction log backups this is not possible. However, is there any 3rd party tools available which can provide a solution for this?
