Asus Laptop shut down and spoilt my database "corrupted"!

I use VivoBook Max X541NA. Some days ago, it spoilt my day. I was working with database in Visual FoxPro. I went aside for some minutes, when I came back laptop was turned off. I launched it again, and FoxPro popped up a message...Visual FoxPro not a table error upon opening DBF file. Now I need any dbf fixer or guide, I want to handle it.

    1. It is possible to undelete an earlier version of a file in Windows 7, 8, or 10. Not sure what operating system VivoBook Max X541NA uses.

    2. Commercial software might repair it, but I don't know what product is the best. Here is one that showed up in an internet search, but I don't have it, and can't say if it works properly or not.

    I am using the Comment box to allow anyone to jump in who can help. It has been over 10 years since I worked with FoxPro so I am not much help.

    Hi Sarah,

    You can also refer to the below-mentioned post. https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Re...
    This will help you to know the causes behind it.

    sarah, the first thing is are you backed up.
    so not run any database of any kind not backed up.
    and is to be said first, so any helper can answer with clarity.
    if no backup, then back up now
    so later, if you mess up the DB more
    then you can at least go back to day1, spoilt.
    or to day1 (minus 1 day) not spoilt
    see?
    back up daily or more often, only you know
    how important your data is, not us, ever.

    for example my DB is accounts receivable.
    imagine losing that... (doomed)
    Some data bases are pure fluff like you see here. fixya forums. (as is 1/2 down right now? here)
    YMMV

SOURCE: Is it possible to Repair DBF file?

If the file needs to be repaired, it is already damaged. To make things worse not only keeps a spare copy. And so - foxfix very powerful tool for recovery. Or a hex editor to see what is written in the tail of the file if the garbage - it cut before the "normal" data (aligned along the border post), to calculate the size and the size of the .dbf header records how many there really are, and to correct the record count in the header. Also there is a file header, which is similar to can (and should) rule in heh mode.

here you can see this topic. Here is the link to the forum

SOURCE: How to recover a database on known *.bak file?

Completely - in any way. If you find also tbk the file - then is possible. bak is
backup copy of the dbf file, tbk - a backup copy of fpt (there a memo of a field are).
However you were perhaps lucky, and actually fpt the file wasn't cleared.
And it is possible "to restore" of course simple renaming of bak file into dbf file. Of course then have to be reindexed the table, and if the structure changed, in general, to recreate the indexes from scratch. and perhaps "to treat"
the container Database dbc/dct (if you use it of course).
If so it doesn't turn out, then try to restore through DBF Viewer Tool. It well restores.

Come here on a forum and look at councils for this subject is there.

NOARCHIVELOG mode, otherwise you wouldn't be asking this question.
Assuming that your db file is really corrupted, then you can startup the database without this file:
1. take a full backup of all your current db files, control files, redo log files.
2. Startup mount the instance
3. ALTER DATABASE DATAFILE 'fullpath/filename' OFFLINE DROP;
4. ALTER DATABASE OPEN;
This will drop the file from your db, so all data in it will be lost, but the data in other tablespaces will be accessible.
If this doesn't work, restore to its original state using the backup taken in step 1.
However, before concluding that your file is corrupt, try to see what happened to it.
Post the following info:
Your archivelog/noarchivelog mode.
Tablespace to which this file belongs.
Oracle error when starting up the database.
Also, startup mount your db and :
SELECT * FROM V$DATABASE;
SELECT * FROM V$DBFILE;
SELECT * FROM V$RECOVER_FILE;

HOW TO SOLVE VFP FILE CURRUPT WHEN POWER FAILURE


At times, you may view that your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database is behaving abnormally. Some of the abnormal symptoms could be an error message while opening any database table, invalid characters in place of pre-defined values, and and more. The main reason for abnormal behavior of the database is its corruption due some logical crash. Few common reasons for corruption of MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database are abnormal termination, faulty network devices, simultaneous modifications, conflicting third-party software, and incompatible service packs.
To overcome such database corruption scenarios, the user can use an up-to-date backup and perform restoration. However, restoration fails in cases where the user either forgets to create a database or the database backup itself gets damaged. In such cases, the database users can use a third-party DBF File Repair application to repair his/her corrupted database.
To illustrate the above case, consider a real-time scenario wherein you execute a query to modify your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database. While the query was performing the modification, the system shutdown due to power failure. However, the next time you tried to mount the database, you encountered an error message that did not allow you to access the database records. Moreover, the same error message appears every time you try to access the database.
Cause:
The root cause for the error message is MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database corruption due to improper system shutdown.
Resolution:
The database corruption error message can be surmounted by following the below steps:
Use a complete database backup and perform restoration. However, in case of database backup unavailability, you will need to search for a commercial DBF File Repair utility.
A third-party DBF Repair application uses effective repair techniques to repair logically damaged MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database and restore it at a new and safe location. The original database during the repair process remains intact. The tool is easy-to-understand and allows even a non-technical person to perform repair.
DBF Recovery Software is a comprehensive solution to repair databases created in MS Visual FoxPro 9.0, MS Visual FoxPro 8.0, and MS Visual FoxPro 7.0. The tool also repairs databases built in dBase III, dBase IV, and dBase V. Supported by Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP, and 2000, the DBF Repair tool creates a new repaired file that can be attached to existing database.
Tanvi Sharma is a self employed Internet entrepreneur and product reviewer. This DBF Repair utility is extremely useful when the dBase and Foxpro database gets corrupted due to internal program errors, hardware malfunctioning, accidental deletion of data and more. This DBF Repair software repairs all types of database components including table name, column name, column data type, indexes and primary keys.
