ACT Diag not showing all databases

Trying to recover an ACT database (ACT 2008) where the error is the ldf and mdf file do not match.  Tried running actdiag but the database in question does not show up in the console.  Any ideas at all.....

Re: ACT Diag not showing all databases

Hello Ewfinehouse,

Welcome to the Act! Online Community!

 

The Actdiag utility will only list databases that are local and have successfully attached to the SQL program.  Since you are getting an error that the MDF and LDF do not match, it cannot connect to SQL and will not show in Actdiag.

 

You mention the MDF file, that is normally the Act email database - is this correct, that your error is with an MDF?  Or is it an ADF (contact database file)?

 

Do you have a backup of the database that you can restore?

Re: ACT Diag not showing all databases

The error message i am getting is that the error may indicate data corruption or that the log file (.ldf) does not match the data file (.mdf)  I do not currently have a backup of the database as the machine was formatted.  The only thing saved was the .adf file and the pad file.
