Repair Corrupt Access Database File

If your access database fie is corrupted and you are searching for how to repair it, then I would like to suggest two way for repairing it.
1. Use "Compact and Repair" feature to repair corrupt MS Access database file.
2. Use 3rd-party access file repair tool.
Both methods can be applied for repairing and recovering corrupt or damaged access database file. Bit I recommned 3rd-party tool because it is very easy to use and reliable. There no chance to loss data. 

Features of Accees Recovery Tool:
  • It repairs ms access MDB and ACCDB files
