Repair Corrupt Access Database File

mark26parks
I am using MS Access 2010 and one of my databases on our shared network does not open for any user. Shows "Unrecognized Database Format." error message.
I can't even get it to the point of opening. Is there a solution for this?
Is there any commercial tool to recover data from a corrupted database?

    One can try Compact and Repair feature of MS Access. It repairs corrupt database and makes it accessible for database users. Other than this one can also use import feature of MS Access that helps database users import their corrupt database to a new database file.

    If both these solutions fail to fix this corruption,

    Then one must check some third-party access database repair or recovery software. I would like to suggest MDB Repair Kit software here to repair corrupt .mdb and .accdb files. One can check its free demo version before buying its full version. Download the software from this page: http://www.mdb.repair/

    Hope this would be helpful.

    Microsoft Access files get corrupted due to the improper handling and system generated errors. So before starting to recover your files, you should take a backup of already corrupted data. This backup will help in case of any damage that may happen to the originally corrupted MS Access database file during the recovery process.
