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:

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.

Come here on a forum and look at councils for this subject is there.

Dbf file fix


Sounds like a corrupt FAT table.

Try backing up the entire drive (on a sector by sector rather than file basis if you can, i.e.: an immage backup) and then try running scan disk.

DBF file lost after OS reinstalled


Some helpful resources for you:

Non-commercial project, which can give you an alternative view to your issue:-
http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/databases/databases-aa/dbase-iv-clipper-foxpro/429-how-can-i-open-corrupted-dbf-file-via-ms-foxpro

One more method, must be DBF Fix Toolbox - this is shareware software
You may download its demo: http://www.dbf.fixtoolbox.com/ - who knows, apparently it also can resolve the trouble.

Another fresh alternative way

The new database is useless. Drop it and its associated service.
Copy your files, all the database files (control file, redo logs, data, configuration files...) in the new hardisk, if possible at the same location (directories).
Then use oradim to create the service: oradim -new <sid> -startmode manual
Start the service if it is not already started.
Execute sqlplus "/ as sysdba" and try a startup.
If all files were copied in the same location, this should work.

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.
