If the file needs to be repaired, it is already damaged. To make things worse not only keeps a spare copy. And so - foxfix very powerful tool for recovery. Or a hex editor to see what is written in the tail of the file if the garbage - it cut before the "normal" data (aligned along the border post), to calculate the size and the size of the .dbf header records how many there really are, and to correct the record count in the header. Also there is a file header, which is similar to can (and should) rule in heh mode.

here you can see this topic. Here is the link to the forum

and even try to program DBF Recovery Kit

How to fix corrupted Visual FoxPro 9 dbf, dbc?


"Not a table" means more serious problem than TABLEVALIDATE can fix obviously. Also when DBF recovery fails the problem can be critical (if you have the DBF recovery which supports your DBF file format).

You should look at the DBF header via some hexa editor. You may even use the one from VFP:

DO HOME() + "Tools\HexEdit\HexEdit.app"

It will ask for a file opening so please select your DBF and post first two lines here or look at the DBF structure description in the VFP help.

First two lines (in hex editor) contain the file type, number of records, record size, last update etc. "Not a table" means the first byte was not recognized as valid DBF file marker.
Additional lines contain column descriptions each one in 16 bytes.

More info: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/st4a0s68(v=vs.80).aspx
Second easiest fix is use DBF Recovery Toolbox or some other applications. Search in Google. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/dbf_recovery.html

How do dbf viewer do?


A linked server is basically just a pointer that lets the code within your database interact with external data sources as if they were also within your database/instance. There are some examples here for creating linked servers to DBF Viewer Tool:
http://www.dbf.viewertool.com/
So for example if you had a linked server to a FoxPro database called MyFoxProDB you could run a query within SQL Server like this:
UPDATE t
SET t.foo = x.bar
FROM dbo.LocalTable AS t
INNER JOIN MyFoxProDB...TableName AS x
ON t.key = x.key;
You could also consider using OPENROWSET as described in this question:

What should I do to regain access to dbf files?


If you are not able to access database files, its means that your access database file is corrupted or damaged due to this reason your access file is inaccessible. To repair corrupt access database file, you can use compact and repair features. If this method is fail, then try access database recovery software. I have used access database recovery software many times and got 100% recovery back.

How to recover a database on known *.bak file?


Completely - in any way. If you find also tbk the file - then is possible. bak is
backup copy of the dbf file, tbk - a backup copy of fpt (there a memo of a field are).
However you were perhaps lucky, and actually fpt the file wasn't cleared.
And it is possible "to restore" of course simple renaming of bak file into dbf file. Of course then have to be reindexed the table, and if the structure changed, in general, to recreate the indexes from scratch. and perhaps "to treat"
the container Database dbc/dct (if you use it of course).
If so it doesn't turn out, then try to restore through DBF Viewer Tool. It well restores.

HOW TO SOLVE VFP FILE CURRUPT WHEN POWER FAILURE


At times, you may view that your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database is behaving abnormally. Some of the abnormal symptoms could be an error message while opening any database table, invalid characters in place of pre-defined values, and and more. The main reason for abnormal behavior of the database is its corruption due some logical crash. Few common reasons for corruption of MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database are abnormal termination, faulty network devices, simultaneous modifications, conflicting third-party software, and incompatible service packs.
To overcome such database corruption scenarios, the user can use an up-to-date backup and perform restoration. However, restoration fails in cases where the user either forgets to create a database or the database backup itself gets damaged. In such cases, the database users can use a third-party DBF File Repair application to repair his/her corrupted database.
To illustrate the above case, consider a real-time scenario wherein you execute a query to modify your MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database. While the query was performing the modification, the system shutdown due to power failure. However, the next time you tried to mount the database, you encountered an error message that did not allow you to access the database records. Moreover, the same error message appears every time you try to access the database.
Cause:
The root cause for the error message is MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database corruption due to improper system shutdown.
Resolution:
The database corruption error message can be surmounted by following the below steps:
Use a complete database backup and perform restoration. However, in case of database backup unavailability, you will need to search for a commercial DBF File Repair utility.
A third-party DBF Repair application uses effective repair techniques to repair logically damaged MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 database and restore it at a new and safe location. The original database during the repair process remains intact. The tool is easy-to-understand and allows even a non-technical person to perform repair.
DBF Recovery Software is a comprehensive solution to repair databases created in MS Visual FoxPro 9.0, MS Visual FoxPro 8.0, and MS Visual FoxPro 7.0. The tool also repairs databases built in dBase III, dBase IV, and dBase V. Supported by Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP, and 2000, the DBF Repair tool creates a new repaired file that can be attached to existing database.
Tanvi Sharma is a self employed Internet entrepreneur and product reviewer. This DBF Repair utility is extremely useful when the dBase and Foxpro database gets corrupted due to internal program errors, hardware malfunctioning, accidental deletion of data and more. This DBF Repair software repairs all types of database components including table name, column name, column data type, indexes and primary keys.

Convert dbf file to MySql file


php is not a database file, it is a script file used to build active web pages. I use Perl to automatically convert dbf files to SQL Server, which would be the same syntax.
