How can I tell whether SecureRecovery for Paradox will successfully restore my corrupted Paradox database?
SecureRecovery for Paradox can treat many types of file corruption, and it offers excellent ease of use with powerful features. To determine whether or not it will work for your database, you can try the demo version, which will give you a readout of recoverable database fields, then decide whether to buy a license.
What licensing option should I select when I purchase SecureRecovery for Paradox?
This depends on how you intend to use the software. Consult our Licensing page to read about the options listed above.
How can I use the command line to operate SecureRecovery for Paradox?
Note that you can only use the command line when operating SecureRecovery for Paradox under a Service or Enterprise license. You can use standard modifiers; for example, ‘*’ replaces character groups, while “?” replaces single characters. Before running a batch file or operating the software through the command line, make sure that you have successfully created a directory for the recovered data.
The command call is below:
You do not need to use brackets when creating your batch file.
What are the limitations of the demo version?
The demo version has a limited number of recoverable rows, while the full version has no such limitation. Past this point, the free version of SecureRecovery for Paradox will generate “demo” in text fields and “0” in numeric fields. These placeholders help to identify recoverable data, and if the demo output does not generate placeholders, it may indicate that the field is too severely damaged to be restored.
I notice that my recovered databases are smaller than they were originally. Is this standard?
Yes, this does not necessarily mean that your Paradox database is unrecoverable or that it has significant damage. SecureRecovery for Paradox will use blank space as a replacement for severely damaged areas of your database file, and this can result in a smaller file size.
The demo version also creates smaller databases when outputting data, but this is due to the placeholders that the demo uses in place of recoverable fields.
