When Database Corruption Strikes

Download PDF

Today I am presenting to the session “When Database Corruption Strikes” to the High Availability and Disaster Recovery PASS Virtual Chapter.


Here is the abstract:

You are working along month after month with no problems in your database. Suddenly someone reports that their query won’t run. They get an error stating “SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error“, or something even scarier. Do you know what to do now? We will walk through 3 or 4 actual corrupt databases exploring ways to go about finding and fixing the corruption. More importantly we will explore how to prevent further data loss at the time corruption occurs. Learn what things you should do to protect yourself when corruption strikes. Learn what to avoid that will make things worse. You will leave with a checklist of steps to take when you encounter corruption. By the end of this session you will be ready to take on corruption, one database at a time

In this presentation I will walk through some of the basics of dealing with corruption, followed by 3 examples of corrupt database that I will show you how to fix.

Here is the download with samples and slides from the presentation:

This presentation covers some examples from the Database Corruption Challenge that has been running for the last 8 weeks.
