Pre-Con Sessions


A Day of SQL Server Internals and Data Recovery

Take your recovery game to an all new level. Take a deep dive into SQL Server internals and data recovery and learn how to handle a wide variety of data loss and corruption scenarios. The session will cover how to be prepared for, prevent, and recover data lost due to deletion or corruption.

Learn the following skills in this session:
  • Built-in functionality in SQL Server for preventing and detecting corruption that you may not even know about.
  • How to identify a specific transaction in the transaction log and recover data lost from that transaction.
  • Categories of corruption and how to manage recovery differently for each one.

Don't come empty handed. Bring your laptop and we'll practice recovering corrupt databases together.
