Recovering a Corrupt Access DB

Last Modified: 2017-11-26
Hi Experts,

A client asked me if I could recover a corrupt database, and I am looking for opinions how to go about it.

I believe that they were using Access 97, but when I try to open it in Access 2010, I get the following error messages, one after the other after clicking "OK". I do have access to Access 365 and 97, but I am wondering on how I can start, or if this is possible?

Thank you
