database file( .mdf .ldf)

By PalBodnar ·
I run SQL 2008 on a Windows 7 and I found that my database was marked as "suspect" by Enterprise Manager and its icon become gray.
I detach that database and try to re-attach it but there is an error as the following:

Error 3624:
Location : page.cpp:2801
Expression: rowLength >= offset + deleteLenght
SPID : 56
Precess ID:1612

After that, I uninstall the SQL and re-install new SQL and try to re-attach the database file again and there is still an error.
Remark: I have all the database file (database.mdf and database.ldf).

Is there anyway i can recover the data from that database?

PS. I already notice that there's a MSSQLRecovery program.
PS. I have the backup data but it's too old.

How to repair SQL database?

by natty_sem In reply to database file( .mdf .ldf)

There's a built-in tool in MS SQL Server, called Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. It comes with MS SQL Server 2005 and later versions. By using this tool, you can run a couple of database console commands: DBCC CHECKDB and DBCC DBREPAIR. This will help you repair SQL database which is tagged as suspect.
