I was facing difficulty in accessing my Access database files. Whenever I tried to access the files, the application displayed some random errors. Corruption was the probable cause behind this issue. So, I tried some manual methods to repair and recover the database but didn’t get the desired results.
When I was unable to recover the data from my Access database, I panicked as it contained thousands of records of people with whom I had done business in the last five years. That was when one of my colleagues suggested to use Stellar Repair for Access – an advanced Access repair tool. Since I’ve never tried a third-party tool before, I hesitated at first, but eventually came around to using it. I was truly surprised by the simple user interface of this tool and how easy it was for me to repair the database files and recover the data.
Here, I am sharing my experience of using the software with you.
But before moving on, let me briefly tell you about this software.
About Stellar Repair for Access
Stellar Repair for Access is a powerful tool for repairing Access database and recovering its contents safely. This tool extracts all the data present in the Access database and displays them, including tables, queries, forms, and more. You can look through this list and decide the ones that you want to recover and store in a new database. Based on your selection, the tool will recover the chosen items and move them to a new database.
Here are some important features of the software that I would like to specifically mention.
- Repairs both .ACCDB and .MDB database files.

In addition to these features, what I love the most about Stellar Repair for Access is that it can fix all kinds of database corruption errors. It can help fix errors, such as “ID is not an index in this table”, “Access database error 2950”, etc. It not only fixes these errors but also safely restores the data without losing integrity or consistency.
