I've got a HDD which is encrypted with petya-green. I used "Disk Internals NTFS Recovery" for recovering the databasefiles which are needed.

Than I tried to simpl attach the databasefiles to a new Microsoft SQL Server 2012 installation. But the mdf files seems to be corrupted and need a repair.

Now installed several repair tools for evaluation. "Stellar Phoenix SQL Database Repair" seems to me like making a good result. But also "Kernel for SQL Database" seems to be produce a good repair. Now I need to make a decision which tool I have to buy.

Does anyone have experience with this 2 tools (or other tools)? Or other tools and give me a tip which one I should buy?

It can be run on Windows or Linux. If it is free it is good, if I have to pay for is also fine (if the databse repair succesfull ;-) )

Thanks in advanced :-)

    Yes, but this HDD is infected by the green version of petya. But we already brute forced the decryption key. But unfortunately the decryption is not working correctly.... So I still thinking about to repair the databasefile. – White Jun 15 '16 at 17:07

You can go with Stellar Phoenix SQL database repair software. As I had used this tool previously when my SQL server 2012 database was corrupt. I had tried DBCC CHECKDB with repair_allow_data_loss but got same error message. I had downloaded three tools: Stellar Phoenix, Kernal & systools but Stellar Phoenix suited me best. Finally bought this tool to repair my database.

I have done a quick research for you and listed some unique features in Stellar Phoenix SQL database repair:

  • Supports SQL server 2016.
  • Offers multiple options: MSSQL, CSV, HTML and Excel to save repaired database.
  • Automatically display the SQL server version when you select database.
  • And last, price is less as compared to kernal SQL repair".
  • At last, I will suggest you that always buy a software which is best suited for you! Also always prefer to purchase things from a branded company, it will be good for after purchase support or refund related thing.
