I am trying to restore a database from a computer that recently crashed on me. When opening the PAD file in ACT I get the following message:
“An error occurred while processing the log for the database ‘DBNAME’. If possible, restore from backup. If a backup is not available, it might be necessary to rebuild the log.”
I have no backups of the database.
In actdiag when tryging to attach the database I get the same message.
The data in here is crucial and I need it right away, any help would be appreciated.

The pad file is only a pointer. The files you need are the ADF and ALF with the ADF being critical.
