How to restore broken SQL database file


Dead computer and all the information. The computer reset with formatting (otherwise cut it). Using software to restore files managed to get the SQL database files (.mdf). But on the other computer, this file does not accept. Writing error. 've tried everything. How to recover this file? Work there for 2 years.... HELP


Copy MDF file to a different computer, which has SQL install, and attempt a "single file attach" (normally attach requires both MDF and LDF files)

If you've tried that, or it doesn't work, then restore from backup file. Sounds like you don't have one of those ... in which case all bets are off.

Pay a company to try to rescue the data from the disk
