Structured query language (SQL) is a database computer language designed for managing data in RDBMs developed by Microsoft corporation. It has two primary query languages, ANSISQL and T-SQL. It offers the facility to access SQL Server database from anywhere, be it from your desktop or data center. It also provides combined services to search, query, report synchronize and analyze the database records. Sometimes it may happen that the SQL Server is unable to run. It may possible that the master database of SQL Server has gone damaged. This can be possible because of several reasons such as human errors, virus infections, power outages while SQL Server was open. In that case, you should replace the damaged database with its clean and backup. However, if the backup is not clean and updated then you should use an advanced sql recovery software to recover SQL database. Consider a case wherein you have Microsot SQL Server installed on your machine.
