To resolve the above error and access the data, you will need to install the latest service pack of Windows. However, to repair the already corrupted Accounts database, you will need to use an inbuilt repair utility named “Compact and Repair.” The repair application is fully competent to repair the corrupted Access database in most of the scenarios. However, if the utility is unable to repair the Accounts database and you still encounter the same error message, then you will need to use advanced Access Recovery software. These access repair applications use effective scanning algorithms to scan and repair the corrupted database.

Reasons of MDB
Corruption & repair MDB file with Access Recovery Tool

It is difficult to recognize what exactly has caused the
corruption. However, there are some common corruption reasons that damage the
file integrity of the Access database.



  • When copying or
    transferring of the file is done incorrectly by your system, there are
    chances of the corruption in file. It can occur while downloading the file
    from network or copying it from any other system.
  • If the system hard
    disk where the Access database is saved has bad sectors, and the file is
    mounted on these damaged sectors, there are chances of file being
    corrupted. In such case, only few part of the MDB file is readable.
  • Virus attack on the
    system where the file is saved is another reason that can cause corruption
    in the file. Infected system can infect all files stored on the same
    system and hence a system must be protected against all such external
    malware programs.
