I hope I never have to use this article, but if I do, it will be a lifesaver. Check out Paul Randal‘s post on recovering a SUSPECT database that’s been detached. He shows not only how to corrupt a database whilst keeping it functional, he also shows just why detaching a SUSPECT database is a horrible idea….and how you can ultimately recover from doing so.
