Incorrect Configuration of SQL Server 2005 May Lead to Database Corruption

Microsoft SQL Server is the most advanced and widely used RDBMS (Relations Database Management System). It stores all of your critical data in MDF (Master Database File), in the form of tables. But in case if the SQL Server gets damaged, it does not allow you to properly mount the database and access data from it. There are several possible scenarios of SQL Server corruption, which include virus infection, application crash, improper system shutdown, file system corruption and operating system failure. All these situations cause critical data loss and require SQL Recovery to be sorted out. You should always opt for reliable and effective solutions for absolute recovery.

As as example of SQL Server corruption, when you try to start Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you might encounter below given error message:

"Could not start the SQL Server (SQL2005) service on Local Computer

Error 14001: This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

Subsequent to above error message, MS SQL Server database become unmountable and inaccessible. The major reason behind occurrence of above error message is damaged or incorrect SQL Server configuration settings. In order to access database in these cases, you need to reinstall SQL Server 2005.

Although, reinstalling SQL Server might help you to carry out SQL Repair, but it is not safe at all. When you reinstall the application, data loss might take place. After you reinstall the SQL Server, the database might get damaged and it can not be reattached with the server.

The problems might occur due to SQL Server edition mismatch. MS SQL Server is available in 64-bit and 32-bit editions. The 64-bit edition uses Windows Installer to perfectly integrate installation of SQL Server characteristics in single feature tree. But if the hardware is not compatible with particular edition, the installation might fail.

No matter what the cause is, database corruption can not be accepted at any cost and it cause serious data loss issues. In these cases, you need to repair and restore the damaged database and retrieve all of its objects using third party SQL Recovery software.

These applications are particularly designed to perform in-depth scan of affected database and successfully restore it. The SQL Repair tools have interactive and simple graphical user interface to enable Do It Yourself recovery. With read-only and non-destructive conduct, they are completely safe to use.
