    Recovering data when log files corrupt

      I am interested to understand if you can easily salvage the data files if the log files corrupt for some reason. Thus far I cannot see how this can be easilly achieved as db_backup requires a working environment, and since the log files may have vanished, the LSN of the data files will be greater than of the last log - and therefore refuse to create the environment.

      Ideally I guess, I am looking for a tool that can reset the LSN in place. It would be better to have access to your 100's of GB of data and accept a small amount of inconsistency or data loss than have nothing.
