And an example corrupt 2000 database to play with

As promised in my earlier post of an example corrupt 2005 database, here’s one I’ve just created for SQL Server 2000.


The attached WinZip file contains a backup of a simple 2000 database called ‘broken’ . It has a simple table called ‘brokentable’ (c1 int, c2 varchar(7000)) with one row in it. The table has a single data page with page ID (1:75) that I’ve corrupted so the page header is corrupt. When you try selecting from the table, you should get a 605 error that kills the connection. See the previous post for instructions on restoring it etc.


Have fun!
