At times when the user attempts to open the SQL Server database, he comes across an error message. This error message does not allow the user to open the database. Various factors responsible for the occurrence of this error message are less hard drive space, no permissions granted to the user, virus infection etc. In such situations, if the user has not created any back up of the inaccessible SQL database, then he needs to use effective SQL Database Recovery software.
As a practical example, when a user attempts to open a SQL Server database, he encounters the below error message:
SQL SERVER – FIX : Error 945 Database cannot be opened due to inaccessible files or insufficient memory or disk space. See the SQL Server error log for details
This is one of the most common error messages that the user receives while opening a SQL database. After receiving the above error message, SQL database can not be mounted. The various factors that can result in the occurrence of the above error message are less hard drive space, Autogrow feature, .mdf or .ldf files are marked as read only or the user is not granted permission to open that SQL database. To solve the above problem and to access the SQL database, the user needs to follow the following steps:
1) The user needs to add more hard drive space either by removal of unnecessary files from hard drive or by adding another hard drive with larger size.
2) The user needs to disable the Autogrow feature of the SQL database.
3) The user needs to check if the account from which he is trying to access the database has enough permission to open the database.
4) The user needs to make sure that .mdf and .ldf files are not marked as read only on operating systems file system level.
If the above error message appears even after following the above steps, then the user needs to recover and restore the inaccessible SQL database.
