Recently, one of my customers had a server crash. Unfortunately, the 3th party who was responsible for the backup was 'forgotten' to schedule a backup of the DB (I know, I should have notice that).
After a professional recovery, I have the
.ldf files back. I was able to attach them back to SQL Server 2005 Express. At first glance, everything looked ok.
However, the most recent changes (say from one month before crash) are missing. Has anyone seen that before? Does anyone knows a solution for that? Is it possible that it is still in the
.ldf? I think the recovery model was Simple.
As a side note, I'm sure that the data was there since there is a printed version. I'm also sure that it is the most recent
.mdf / .ldf that is recovered and sent.
I did already several
DBCC checkDB with different parameters (every time on a fresh
.mdf/.ldf combination of course). I know there is a consistency error somewhere but it doesn't block me to query the last 20000 rows. So expect to find the last records there (or I am wrong here?). The fix of this consistency error is lower prio since it occurs in the older data region. Worst case scenario, we can remove that part.
So, please help me with the missing data.
Thanks in advance!
