    Hi all

    I#%92m not sure it#%92s the right forum, but since question is related to Corrupted data this seamed like appropriate.

    I was searching for good tool to help me recover corrupted and lost data.

    While searching the web I found this product that caught my eye: Log PI. It seams it has all I need, but I had problems connecting to their web page http://www.logpi.com) and when I searched more info I found they were bought by Golden Gate.

    Does any one know if product is still alive and being sold? How is support for it? Do you have some experience about customer support after transfer to Golden Gate?

    Thank you for feedback

    I was just at PASS and spoke to a representtaive at Golden Gate Software, which purchased LogPI, and the representative there didn't know anything about the product. I assume this means that is currently isn't available and may not be in the future. Seems rather odd.

    Red Gate Software and Lumigent Software offer similar products.

    What a shameless plug this is.

    Thank you both for replies.

    Too bad that Log PI is no longer active.

    I'm quite new to MS SQL and with small budget I have at disposal I must be sure I pick tool that offers most for money. I'll check more about products you mentioned.

    Do products you mentioned offer good quality, features and support? I must say I value support very much because I haven#%92t used any third party tools in DBA before.

    I can't comment on other products as the Apex tool is the first of its kind I've used. The guys at Apex have been very helpful answering my questions while I was writing the review.
    I think all vendors offer to download a trial version. Why don't you try it out yourself?

    I will download and try of course. The thing is that I don't have so much time with my workload. And trying all tools at once is something I can't fit to my time frame..and during free time I just can't look at more databases <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' /><br /><br />So i posted here to see what people recommend and their experience with products to save some time.<br /><br />You all have been very helpful, and i thank you for feedback <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br /><br />

    The thing is, that I've reviewed the Apex software and as such might be biased. The Apex Log tool offers everything I need, except BLOB recovery support, but when I now recommend their Log, it would probably look strange.

    Redagate and Lugiment do not support SQL 2k5, that sadly eliminates them as my company is thinking to migrate to 2k5 in next few months. I want a tool that can help me if things go bad during it <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' /> Also I e-mailed Apex and they say that BLOB support will be implemented in next version that is out soon. <br /><br />Thank you for recommendation Frank.<br /><br />EDIT: Noticed on Lumigent page they will add SQL2k5 support in Q3 2006...i guess they are running bit late then. Any info on when they will add it - is there any beta for trial? Their tool is also rather interesting.

    As per the recent discussion with Red-gate pro's at SQLPASS, they are working on SQL 2005 capability and soon you will hear the news.
