Mongo version: 2.6 I think one or more of my MongoDB index is corrupt which is not letting me delete the corrupt collection or make a backup with mongodump

Below is the error i get when i try to execute drop

    "$err" : "no NamespaceDetails for index: { name: \"_id_\", ns: \"Bnk.notifications\", key: { _id: 1 }, v: 0 }",
            "code" : 17329

What can be done to get this collection removed or repaired if possible ?


Try to repair it by using repairDatabase.
