Databases – Data Recovery

Losing data stored in MySQL, SQL Server, SyBase, Access, Oracle and other databases on networked servers, could be catastrophic for any business. In addition to the standard risks associated with personal computers and servers, databases face a host of other problems, which even skilled system administrators and DBAs may find difficult to resolve. Running File Recovery Software should not be an option under any circumstances.

Common problems with servers include:

  • accidental or malicious deletion of records
  • deleted/dropped tables
  • database locked as ‘suspect’, preventing access
  • overwritten database files and devices
  • backup data not recognised by the database engine
