mdf database

Recommended Posts



I’m asking if it possible that a attach a .MDF datafile without the .LDF

I want that because i have a corrupted Log file nd when i attach the database raise the following error:-


The log cannot be rebuilt because there were open transactions/users when the database was shutdown, no checkpoint occurred to the database, or the database was read-only. This error could occur if the transaction log file was manually deleted or lost due to a hardware or environment failure.


I just need the data file this what I need and I don’t need the corrupted Log file any more

I tried

sp_attach_single_file_db 'new_2009', 'C:\Data\new_2009_Data.MDF'

But the same error comes up.

Please note i have no recent backup so don’t suggest to restore the database from backup

THIS - might work for you if you follow it with care, take no shortcuts. Read it twice then proceed.

More information you can dig out from resources directly connected with SQL Server databases and database corruption in MS SQL Server any version...

https://www.repairtoolbox.com/sqlserverrepair.html SQL Server Repair Toolbox


One of the commands and types of restoring must assist you, good luck...


Recovering a database that is in the restoring state…


Restore full backup WITH RECOVERY
As mentioned above this option is the default, but you can specify as follows.

RESTORE DATABASE AdventureWorks FROM DISK = 'C:\AdventureWorks.BAK'



Recover a database that is in the "restoring" state
The following command will take a database that is in the "restoring" state and make it available for end users.



Restore multiple backups using WITH RECOVERY for last backup
The first restore uses the NORECOVERY option so additional restores can be done. The second command restores the transaction log and then brings the database online for end user use.

RESTORE DATABASE AdventureWorks FROM DISK = 'C:\AdventureWorks.BAK'



RESTORE LOG AdventureWorks FROM DISK = 'C:\AdventureWorks.TRN'
