The recovery tool was able to restart the database and to give me access to the Data. Unfortunetaly the primary and foreign keys and indexes were not recovered (name changed) and the Database was not functionnal at all. I had to take the Data from the recovery and to reimport them in a previous backup. So I am a little disapointed even if restoring has avoided several hours of work

it can repair Access 2007 MDB file well

Camryn Vargas 04-07-2021

Write on the Errors page that you can fix the "Invalid argument" error. First I installed the demo version and waited for the preview (it took about 3 hours). After the data I saw, I bought a license and the program asked me to restart everything again. In general, I spent 6-7 hours, when it could be done 3 hours faster.

Christine Erickson 03-22-2021

The software helped me repair my Access 2007 DB. Simple steps to fix. I recommend

Bookstaff 02-08-2021

Even the portable version of the program was not useful, as the online repairing quickly fixed the errors of the .accdb file.

Omicron 01-13-2021

The program checked the file and fixed errors in it. If I could select the tables I needed, I would probably spend less time repairing the file. Think about it

Quatrefoil 12-28-2020

MS Access unable to read the .MDF file which was modified less than an hour ago. The breakdown occurred due to a change in the form and in part of the logic in macros. After repaired, I was left without a form and macros :D, but with a working file.

Kamryn Salvador 12-15-2020

Can't use this Microsoft Access for big projects, it always breaks, problems with save the .mdb file correctly. If not for you, I probably would not have been able to pass my term paper at the university. My database broke at the last moment, when there was a week left before the project was delivered. Thanks for repairing

Jenesis Nathan 08-10-2020

My .mdb file needs some errors fixes. I'm lucky that you can repair any version of Access file. I have Access 2007, I was able to fix the corrupted file

AtomyZyrian 08-01-2020

Access displays an error message when trying to open a database, and most importantly, the error is not written in Latin, but in some incomprehensible hieroglyphs. The base does not respond to the queries, even through macros. I was advised your program on the Access forum. The demo version of the program repairs the database, but I have not decided to buy yet, since it does not fix its forms.

Osmold Seyyr 06-29-2020

To fix error "3197 no table found" in Access, I had to spend a lot of time for repair MS Access database by online.

Aardwolf 06-15-2020

After VB coding, my query broke .MDF file. While I try to open file, Access reports error "Query 'turists" is corrupt" and other tables also corrupted. I used step-by-step instruction for recover but for unknown reason, in some cells in table missing data.

Georgic 06-01-2020

MS Access 2003 crashes with a critical error into the system because the form has stopped working. In VBA, forms open, but when you save, the result is the same. I decided to restore and redo everything in MS Access 2010 so that there was a .ACCDB format, but when fixing the file, I could not restore the last form from 7. As a result, I had to pick it up and manually register it in MS Access 2010 with VBA code.

Demitasse 05-13-2020

I was looking for a program to restore Access on Windows 32-bit for a long time. The program restored all forms in the .MDB file, but in the "register" and "enter" forms, the password fields were replaced with a simple text field.

TinQuick 04-06-2020

Fixing Access 2007 database with "Compact and Repair Database" command doesn't work any more. As it turned out, the file was just corrupted. After restoring my .ACCDB file, everything worked, the main thing is that the forms did not recover, but the database is in good condition. Thanks.

oakland 02-25-2020

Its really work, because I can repair the selected database from the deleted Access file which one I recover from hard disk. And $27 for repair damaged MS Access 2010 accdb file cheaper than I would give it to IT specialist. Good job!

KYLE34WORKER 01-15-2015

I had some dozens of corrupted .MDB files. I used Recovery Toolbox for Access, it restored them all for couple minutes. + Quite easy interface in comparison with other recovery tools for MS Access. - Tool is smart money, nothing in excess...

Daver 07-14-2013

Wonderful tool. I didn't expect such tremendous result. Tables, queries and data was restored by Recovery Toolbox for Access.
