    Is there a method to recover corrupted .ldf file?

    hello folks,

    I have a mdf file and ldf file from a hard drive that was corrupted... it appears that corruption caused problems with the ldf file. During an attach command SQL Server I get the following error: "Error 823: I/O error 38(reached the end of the file.) ..... on the LOG.ldf file"

    Guys, any help, I'll be appreciated!

    Restore With Transact-SQL

    -Click “New Query” in the Management Studio’s main toolbar. This opens a large text area on the right side of the screen.

    -Click in the text area and type a Create Database statement using the following Transact-SQL code as a guide:
    CREATE DATABASE MyDatabase ON (FILENAME = 'c:\data files\my_data.mdf'), (FILENAME = ' c:\data files\my_data.ldf') FOR ATTACH;

    -Click the “Execute” button in the Transact-SQL toolbar, located just under the Management Studio’s main toolbar. The Execute button symbol is a right-pointing triangle. SQL Server Management Studio restores the database.

    Helpful resources to explain another methods of restoration and gave more variants of sql data recovery...

    Run Chkdsk to find the issue with system inconsistency. You can attach .MDF file without transaction log file (.ldf).
    You can consider below article for details:
