Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Corrupt Paradox file

Last week I had a head crash on a PC using Delphi and Paradox files. I was able to recover everything but a log file for the month of March.

When I open this file from Database Desktop, I get the message at the bottom as follows:

CORRUPT File - Other than Header.

Is there a way I can recover this file? Are there any tools out there?

The situation doesn't look very good, but if you have a copy of Paradox for Windows, try to rebuild the table using Paradox's Table Repair Utility. But I can't promise it'll work. If you have sector damage, key things might be missing from the file.
