SQL 2008 R2 - MASTER.LDF corrupted without backup

I have a SQL server that has a corrupt MASTER.LDF file, which prevents SQL services from starting at all. Is there any way to start SQL services with just MASTER.MDF? So far I have tried renaming MASTER.LDF to MASTER.LDF.OLD and SQL reports that the file is missing and still does not start although I do not get a corrupt message. If I cannot start MASTER.MDF without the log file, is there a way to rebuild the log file? Help is appreciated. Thanks!

Try this one solution...

1. First Shutdown SQL Server
2. Then move the current database file/rename (do not touch the .ldf)
3. After rename/move db, restart SQL Server
4. Create a new database with same name and log file and location also same
5. Stop SQL Server

How do I recover data from .mdf file


Detach you database. Overwrite the mdf and ldf files you've restored from your backup with your files from the D: drive. Reattach the database.
There is no guarantee that this will work or if it works, that your database is in a state where you can continue to work with.
If that doesn't work then there is an option to try to restore database using SQL Server Recovery Toolbox. It is a powerful tool for data recovery. They have a demo version. So you can check it works in your situation or not.

Attach a database without the corrupted log file


There might be other options out there. This is something that worked for me once but there are no guarantees that it will work at all times.

Stop SQL Server instance -> Copy MDF and LDF files to another location -> Delete original MDF and LDF files -> Start SQL Server instance again -> Create new database with exact same name and file names -> Stop SQL Server -> overwrite newly created MDF and LDF.

After this your database should be back online. If it is then go ahead and put it into EMERGANCY mode and SINGLE USER mode.

Finally go ahead and execute DBCC CHECKDB like this

DBCC CHECKDB (databaseName, REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS) WITH NO_INFOMSGS

Whst is the difference between .mdf,.ldf & .sdf?


LDF - layered data file, is the transaction log file for your database. It allows you to roll back changes you made to the data to a particular point and is used in rebuilding the data should it become corrupted.

MDF - Meta data file, is your actual data

SDF - Is a sequential data file, a flat file that can be used for compatibility with MS-SQL server, MySQL, etc.
