    Unanswered: Deleted Database

    Our past CIO deleted a SQL Server database because he didn't know what it was or if we needed it. Guess what we do! We were able to undelete the backup files but when we try to restore from it we get the error "No a valid backup" Any ideas?

    Thank you for any help.

    Do you have the mdf file or a backup file?

    If backup file, try these: RESTORE VERIFYONLY and RESTORE FILELISTONLY.

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
