Access Database Recovery

Access Database RecoveryMicrosoft Access database is a very stable program with inherent data protection and data recovery options in the event of data corruption.  However, from time to time unforseen events such as catastrophic power failure or hard drive crashes can occur, resulting in database corruption and/or the loss or damage to data in your Access Database that is beyond the ability of the in-built database recovery tools.

It is for these reasons that we provide a data recovery and Microsoft Access Database repair service.

What Can Be Recover from an Access Database?

For Microsoft Access database files in a database mdb or accdb format it is often possible to completely recover the entire database. However, where the Access database is in mde or accde format, it might only be possible to recover the actual data, and not the entire database structure itself.  Regardless of the Access Database format (mdb, mde, accdb or accde), if the database is encrypted then there is only a slim possibility that database or data recovery attempts will be successful.

The Best Chance for Access Database Recovery

To ensure that you give yourself the best chance of recovering data from a corrupted Microsoft Access Database, where possible take the following actions

  • Immediately backup your Access database files (.mdb, .mde, .acddb, .accde) to some other media.
    • Do not copy or create the backup on the same media on which the corrupted database file resides.
    • Do not overwrite any previously created backups of the database files i.e. regularly used backup tapes or media.
  • Where possible, and if you have the software tools are available, make a bit stream copy of the hard drive on which the corrupt Microsoft Access database is located to another harddrive or network location.
  • Do not save or copy other files to the hard drive where the corrupt Access Database file resides. It will make data recovery virtually impossible if file components of the original database are overwritten.
  • Take action as soon as possible – the longer you wait, the less likelihood there is of a successful data recovery.

After taking the above actions, contact us and we will organise for you to send us a copy of the corrupt Access database file.  After reviewing the database file we will contact you and outline the options for recovering the database and/or the data, and the likely cost associated with the database recovery process.

Microsoft Assess Database Password Recovery

We also provide a Microsoft Access Database password recovery service for clients who have lost or forgotten the passwords for their database.  In fact, if required we can also recover the passwords for most software application in the Microsoft Office suite of programs.

If you require Access Database password, database or data recovery then please feel free contact us.
