I have covered several drives here in the past and to be fair some of these are quite the kit with James Bond ringing about them and this one is no different but it has a trick up its sleeve compared to others when it comes to the tech aspect.

Data Browser

SecureRecovery for Access is bundled with a Data Browser utility that can zero in on specific items within a corrupted database. As a powerful granular recovery utility, the Data Browser hand-picks items for extraction and repair. It is an ideal tool to use when:

  • Only a Small Number of Files Need Recovery
  • The Source File is Particularly Large
  • Standard Recovery Mode Alone Returns Insufficient Results


While SecureRecovery for Access is an effective recovery solution for virtually any damaged Access file, there are a few operational limitations to the software. SecureRecovery for Access does not recover the following items:

  • Formulas in Calculated Fields (Though Values Are Recovered)
  • Attachment Field Type
  • Embedded Macros
  • Categories

In addition, SecureRecovery for Access does not prevent data loss by restoring referential integrity properties, and when the “multiple values allowed” option is in effect, list type fields cannot be restored. A printer driver must be installed in order to recover corrupted reports.

Access uses a database engine called Data Access Objects, or DAO. SecureRecovery for Access requires a version of DAO that is compatible with the damaged file’s version of Access, which should be equal to or more recent than the installed version of DAO.

Effective Repair for Access Databases

Access files are vulnerable to corruption from any number of sources, including abrupt loss of connectivity, excessive use of memo fields and harmful server configurations. Fortunately, SecureRecovery for Access can limit the data loss from damaged files, regardless of the cause. If you have a corrupted Access file and need your data back quickly, order SecureRecovery for Access today.

Access File Repair

How can I find out whether SecureRecovery for Access will work on my databases?

We offer a demo version of SecureRecovery for Access to help you evaluate your options. After you install and run the demo, you will be able to determine whether your Access databases are recoverable, and the program will provide a list of recoverable/unrecoverable files through the Product Information page.

Remember to back up your data (especially corrupt or damaged Access databases) before running SecureRecovery for Access.

What are the differences between the demo version and the full version of SecureRecovery for Access?

While the full version of the software can completely recover damaged Access databases, the demo version will only recover a limited number of rows, then replace remaining rows with the word “demo” in text fields and null values in other fields. Forms will not be restored, but will instead be replaced with blank demo forms.

The full version of SecureRecovery for Access does not have these limitations.

Why should I use the demo version of the software?

The free version is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of SecureRecovery for Access, and will provide you with the information you need to decide whether to purchase the software.

My recovered Access database files appear smaller than I expected. Is this normal?

Yes. This is due to how SecureRecovery for Access treats damaged areas of your databases. It replaces permanently damaged data with blank areas, thereby reducing the total size of the files. This does not necessarily impact the usability of the recovered databases.

File sizes may also decrease when unsupported features are recovered. The demo version of SecureRecovery for Access will always create smaller recovered databases, since the database entries in these files consist mostly of placeholders and blank text.

Which product licensing option is right for me?

We recommend consulting the Licensing page for a full explanation of the licensing options.

How can I run SecureRecovery for Access through the command line?

You can create batch files and run SecureRecovery for Access through the command line if you have an Enterprise or Service license. However, the standard version does not support this feature.

To use the software, use the format:

ar.exe “”

Do not use angle brackets. Be sure to create the directory for the recovered databases before running SecureRecovery for Access. Use ‘*’ to replace groups of symbols and ‘?’ to replace one simple.

Will this software recover Access 2.0 databases?

Yes, but SecureRecovery for Access will need to be installed on a system with a 32-bit version of Access (Access 2.0 was a 16-bit application).

After I recover my databases, what format will they be in?

This depends on the version of Microsoft Office and DAO used on your system. By default, SecureRecovery for Access will use the oldest available format starting with Access 2000.
