I am in dire need of recovering some SQL database files from a damaged server 2008 installation that will no longer boot due to a damaged registry (SYSTEM) hive. The issue was caused by a bad hard disk, but I've since imaged the drive onto a good hard disk (it still won't boot - damage has been done).
My question - is there ANY way to attach this drive externally to a working machine and "see" the previous versions that were being stored? Some of the current versions of the files located on the drive are munged up - some really important ones.
Help is greatly appreciated.
