Lost a ton of records from one table

Lost a ton of records from one table

Lost a ton of records from one table

Yikes! I have a multiuser database - the data sits on a central server and the application is distributed to the desktop. I came to work yesterday and one of the tables, that used to hold almost 200,000 records, only has 199 records in it. No records prior to midday July 18th. The other tables are intact. Any thoughts on whether this data is recoverable? I have a call in with my IT folks to see if I can get the database from the server backup.



RE: Lost a ton of records from one table

By any chance do you use Active Directory? If so you can right click on it in Windows Explorer, click on Properties and then Previous Versions. I LOVE that feature!

RE: Lost a ton of records from one table

That's cool! Unfortunately no previous versions were found...
