    My server was working fine, today suddenly i was not able to connect to my database with my web application. When i logged into the server, i found many files of SQL Server were deleted. When i tried to search my database .mdf and .dlf file it was not there. I found an unknown folder is been created in “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft SQL Server110Shared” named sqlservr.exe and i am not able to open it. I tried to recover my database files with software “Recuva” and found both my .mdf and .ldf files are located in that “sqlservr.exe/con folder. I was able to recover the .ldf file however, the .mdf files showed me of 0 kb and unrecoverable. I have attached a screenshot of the same. The last full backup i took was way back 25thApr2018. Since then no full backup is been taken. Now the scenario is i have one month back full backup and .ldf file of today’s.

    I want to know any possibility of recovering my .mdf file from that virus folder or recovering my database with one-month-old full backup and current .ldf file.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
