Redesigned interface for improved usability
The new, improved interface will help you to quickly specify the appropriate recovery option.
New recovery option: Direct-to-Database recovery
Direct-to-Database recovery allows you to directly recover data from a recovery source (transaction logs, online database files, damaged data files, backups and so on) into a new database on a server of your choice. Since there is no need to create those pesky multi-gigabyte SQL scripts storage space requirements have been significantly lowered and the performance of the recovery has been improved. To avoid any data loss, a new database is created for each new recovery run. All errors that might happen during the recovery are stored in the newly created database thus allowing you to review them at your leisure.
New recovery option: Recover SQL objects from detached data files
In previous ApexSQL Recover versions the recovery of data from detached (usually damaged) data files has been limited to of user table schemas with row data. Now, you can now recover other database objects like stored procedures, functions, views, indexes and so on.
New recovery option: Recover SQL objects from backups
Similar to recovery from detached data files, previous versions of ApexSQL Recover were limited to recovery of user table schemas with row data. This limitation has now been removed and you can now recover other database objects like stored procedures, functions, views, indexes and so on.
New recovery option: Recover dropped SQL objects from transaction logs
Previously, ApexSQL Recover’s support for dropped database objects like stored procedures, views, functions and so on was limited to SQL Server 2000. The support for recovery of these objects has now been improved and expanded to SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server Denali CTP1.
