In today’s world of virus attacks and power outages, computer crashes are not uncommon. With every crash comes the possibility of data corruption; even more so if there was a write operation in progress at the time of the crash.

Database files, by design, are among those most frequently accessed. Read and write operations happen all the time in a working database. Chances are high that the next power outage will happen just at the moment a database was updating or adding a record. In that case, after your computer reboots, you will not be able to access data in the database.

There are preventive measures that can be taken so that this never happens. You probably have a UPS, a firewall, and antivirus software, and perform regular backups. But what if your backup copy is a week or even a day old and you don’t want to lose changes made during that period? Or even worse, what if you didn’t have a backup at all? In that case, you might want to try to recover your database with database recovery tools.

DBF Recovery by HiBase Group recovers DBF databases exclusively. DBF Recovery supports all file formats used by popular databases, including DBase III/IV, FoxPro and Visual FoxPro. Database recovery is completely automated. The recovery engine employs newly developed artificial intelligence algorithms to carefully analyze the complete structure and all data records of the damaged files. The result is the most accurate recovery.

Many alternative tools that claim they can recover DBF files only repair database headers without actually analyzing the data. Unlike competitors, DBF Recovery makes every effort to repair the data itself as well as the headers.

Database applications rely on external drivers, such as ODBC or BDE, in order to access database files. Unfortunately, these drivers do not have built-in recovery mechanisms. Even worse, they can not even open the corrupted files, making it impossible to rescue the data that was in the database.

DBF Recovery accesses database files directly, without the use of external drivers. Direct access to database files makes it possible to carefully analyze database structures header by header and record by record, ensuring the highest accuracy of recovery.

DBF Recovery can be used by anyone. Beginners and seasoned database users will find its drag-and-drop user interface handy and simple to use, while database administrators will enjoy the powerful set of command line parameters and the batch mode that makes it possible to fix multiple DBF files with a single command.

DBF Recovery is a must-have tool for all database administrators and advanced database users. Don’t wait till your computer actually crashes. It may be too late! Download the evaluation version now at to see what DBF Recovery can do for you!
