Cyclic Redundancy Check error in MS Access

A corrupted MS Access database file can be a head ache for any database user. Corruption in Access database file most likely occurs due to numerous logical factors like, improper system shutdown, MS Office malfunctioning, virus infection, and simultaneous modification of same database component. In most cases of database file damage, an error message pops up that halts you to access any of its stored records. An easy alternative to overcome such error message is by restoring the data from an updated database backup. But, with database users having the habit of forgetting to create an adequate backup, or unable to create backup due to time-shortage, the only option left is to repair the corrupt Access database file using an advanced access repair software application.

Below is an error message that pops up while attempting to open the database file:

“Cannot find the file d:.....\my.mbd or one of its components”

The records stored in the Access database becomes unmountable after the above error message pops up. In addition, the error message does not allow you to access the database file.


The root cause for the above error message is corruption in Access database file.


To resolve the above error message and to access the database file records, you will need to follow the below measures:

Repair your database using the inbuilt repair utility “Compact and Repair”.
If the problem persists, create a new database file and copy the components one by one into it. However, there are possibilities that while copying the database file, you receive an “Cyclic Redundancy Check” error. In such situations, you should search for an advanced Access Database Repair application to repair you database file.

An access recovery software tool repairs logically corrupted database files and restores them on your desired location. The database administrators or the end users can easily perform the database repair, as the application does not require any prior repair experience. The repair tool is completely safe as it does not modify or overwrite the existing records of the database file.
