Salient Features

The SQL Backup Recovery tool delivers advanced database recovery owing to its smart features.

Recover MDF & NDF Files from BAK Files The tool recovers MDF & NDF files form SQL backup (.bak) files. It can recover all the database objects like tables, stored procedures, defaults, rules, triggers, functions, etc. from backup files.

Recover SQL Data from Corrupt BAK Files The SQL database backup recovery tool offers recovery of data even from corrupt SQL back up files. It extracts inaccessible SQL data from corrupt backup files and saves to a live SQL Server or batch file.

Recover Specific SQL Database Objects The SQL Backup Recovery tool offers selective recovery of database objects like tables, triggers, etc. You can select the required SQL Backup data in the preview pane to export them selectively to the desired destination.

Export Data to Live SQL Server The SQL Server data recovered by the software can be exported to a Live SQL Server. With the SQL login credentials (Windows/Server authentication), you can export the SQL Server backup data to the live SQL Server.

Save Backup Data using SQL Scripts The tool also saves SQL backup data to a batch file (by SQL Scripts) at any desired location. This mode does not require a live SQL Server. And this batch file can later be used in an SQL Server.

Automatic Selection of SQL Database Version The tool automatically detects the SQL Server Database version. Also, you can select the SQL Server Database version manually. This manual selection option can be used when the SQL Backup file is severely corrupted.

SQL Backup Recovery in Simple Steps The Kernel tool offers SQL Backup recovery in three steps – select the backup file, preview the SQL data, and save in the desired destination. And non-technical users can also easily use this software.

Free Preview with the Trial Version SQL Backup Recovery tool offers a complete preview of SQL database objects like functions, triggers, tables, stored procedures, etc. with all the details. The preview facility is available even in the free version of the tool.

Kernel SQL Backup Recovery

(4.8 / 5) 437 Reviews

Getting back lost MDF files in their normal state was a tough task for me. But thanks to this tool as it has successfully restored my all SQL database files with the help of its extra-ordinary feature and algorithms just in a matter of minutes.


The live preview feature is astonishing; I can cross check file data before starting the restore,


The tool supports all kinds of backup files for the SQL Server. I am finding it best for an organization that works extensively on databases.
