What are the differences between the demo version and the full version of SecureRecovery for MySQL?
While the demo version contains all of the features of the full version, it limits the recovered records to a specific number of rows in the MySQL database. After it reaches this point, additional rows will appear as blank. The demo version shows the features of the data recovery software and is intended to help users make an informed purchasing decision; the full version is not limited to a certain number of rows, and should fully recover corrupt MySQL data.
Before installing or using either version of SecureRecovery for MySQL, be sure to back up your databases. We recommend backing up to a secondary device so that the original files and the backups are not stored on the same media.
Can I use this software to recover a corrupt MySQL database?
SecureRecovery for MySQL is one of the safest and most effective utilities available for MySQL database repair. It can restore corrupt files in many circumstances and works with 5.x, 4.x, and 3.x versions of MySQL.
If you would like to determine whether this software will work with your databases, install the demo version and follow the onscreen instructions. The application will allow you to see recoverable database items.
If I decide to purchase SecureRecovery for MySQL, which license should I choose?
Please review our full licensing scheme before ordering by visiting our Licensing page.
After running the software, I have successfully recovered my database, but it seems smaller in size. Why is this?
This is normal and can occur for several reasons. Most commonly, the full version software will replace several damaged areas of each recovered database file with blank space, which can cause discrepancies in file sizes. In most cases, the recovered database is still completely usable.
The demo version of SecureRecovery for MySQL creates blank entries after reaching its limited number of rows, so the resulting databases are fairly small.
SecureRecovery for MySQL ran successfully. How can I transfer the resulting files into a new MySQL database?
You will need to recreate the database by processing all of the SQL scripts. Begin with Schema.sql, then proceed with dataNNNN.sql.
To make the process easier, SecureRecovery for MySQL also creates a batch file, located in the same directory as all of the SQL scripts. You can run this batch file to recreate your database(s).
I need to recover multiple MySQL databases, and I would like to create a batch file. How do I run this application through my computer’s command line?

You can use the patterns “*” and “?” as replacements for groups of symbols or individual symbols (respectively). Do not use angle brackets.
Please note that the command line functionality is only accessible with a Server or Enterprise license.
