The technique used in locating and placing data in SQL Server Database is known as B-tree. A B-tree contains a tree-level page that maintains and stores a key value for each child page. In case, the child page is leaf-level page, then all records stored on the tree-level page should contain key values equal to or greater than the key value stored in parent page. However, in case the child page is tree-level page, then all records stored on the tree-level page should contain key value that is equal to the value stored in parent page. Corruption in B-tree results in changing the values of tree-level values, further resulting in the inaccessibility of database records. The best way to surmount any B-tree corruption scenario is by restoring the data from an updated backup. But, in case of absence of an updated backup, you will need to opt for an advanced sql database repair application that can repair your database and provide access to all inaccessible database components...

MS SQL Server database is build up of various metadata structure components like, pages, extent, etc. Pages are the smallest unit of data storage that store actual data. A combination of 8 adjacent pages makes an Extent. Corruption or damage in metadata structure primarily results in inaccessibility of records stored in your database. In most of the database corruption situation, you encounter an error message stating the cause for the error. For successful access of records stored in your database and overcoming hazards created by error message, an easy way is to restore the database records from an updated backup. But if in case, your backup file has been corrupted, damaged, or unreadable, then you will need to use advanced repair software that can comprehensively repair MDF files.

In the MS SQL Server databases, the IAM (Index Allocation Map), GAM (Global Allocation Map), SGAM (Shared GAM) are different types of pages that are used to store the records on the hard disks. These pages combine together in an extent, which is used to hold the metadata of the databases. A lot of times due to the mismatching in these files, the database gets corrupt and does not work properly. In such cases, you should try to repair MDF file using appropriate measures. However, if the problem is not addressed, then there is a strong case of using a third-party SQL repair software.
Consider a situation in which you are facing the following error message while working on an MS SQL Server 2000 database:
“Extent E_ID in database ID DB_ID is allocated in both GAM GAM_P_ID and SGAM SGAM_P_ID.”
The error has occurred because of corruption in the extents due to the irregularities in the IAM, GAM, and SGAM pages.

An extent in the SQL Server databases is a collection of eight consecutive pages, whose details are stored in an IAM (Index Allocation Map) page. An IAM page stores the details of an object and index with the information of the previous and next objects as well. However, sometimes the IAM definitions get corrupt due to issues like header corruption, virus infections, damaged hardware parts, etc. For such cases, you can adopt corrective measures to rectify the issue. If none of the measures works, then there is a need of using a professional MDF file repair
software to perform MDF recovery.
Looking at a practical situation in which you encounter the following error while working on an MS SQL Server 2000 database:
“Page P_ID in database ID DB_ID is allocated to both object ID O_ID1, index ID I_ID1, and object ID O_ID2, index ID I_ID2.”
This problem has appeared as the P_ID page is allocated to two different objects, which is incorrect...

You must have experienced cases of database corruption more often than not. When you face database corruption, you are unable to work further on the database. These instances can occur due to any arbitrary reason. Some of the most prominent ones could be unplanned system shutdown especially when the database is open, page header corruption, virus infections in the database, etc. You can repair SQL database by using few workarounds. However, if nothing works fine then using a third-party SQL repair software is the best option.
For instance, the following error message appears while you are working on an MS SQL Server 2008 database:
“Table error: alloc unit ID A_ID, page P_ID. The test (TEST) failed. The values are VAL1 and VAL2.”
Such problem has happened as a database page, P_ID, has not passed auditing test because of page header corruption. You can refer to the error message where it is clearly shown that the TEST string has failed the test.

In MS SQL Server database, a page is used as the most primitive unit of storage as the space allocated to every database file. And a collection of eight pages is called an extent, which is used to manage the pages. However, sometimes SQL Server is unable to read through the properties of these pages. Such problems can invariably occur due to various issues such as virus infections, power outages, hardware problems, abrupt system shutdown when the database is open, etc. In such cases, you should find out the exact cause of corruption and try to isolate it. If any of the methods do not succeed, then you should use a third-party SQL repair software to repair SQL database
Consider a scenario wherein you encounter the following error message while working on an MS SQL Server 2008 database:
