Urgent! Is there a way to recover deleted database?
I have an important database which need to be recovered from the hdd. The hdd is working fine. Is there a way to recover the database through any possible means no matter how expensive it may cost! Your input is much appreciated!
What OS and filesystem (Windows - NTFS or FAT, or Linux - ext3, ext2, nfs) was on the machine hosting the database? Some filesystems are more likely than others to have not overwritten the data.
Before shelling out thousands, you may be able to mount the drive as a slave and run some undelete software on it. There are some utilities that you can run that will not write anything else to the disk so you can avoid damaging it in case you still wish to send it away to a data recovery center.
