Easy solution to malformed SQLite databases

[quote=412770:@Ralph Alvy]Have you tried this one:

https://www.sysinfotools.com/sqlite-database-recovery.html

They offer a free trial download that can at least let you see if it can preview the data. It just won’t let you save to a new database.[/quote]
The reason i cited that one is that they claim it can repair header corruption.

I do that too in 2013, and not long after the client ask some more Columns, so I added then, and in the same time I exported the db file contents from the REALSQLite format and import them into the brand new SQLite file format. I never had troubles with the db file in the last five years.

How many file operations your DB File have ?

As I said before, the best place to ask and have answered questions about SQLite is on the SQLite Users’ Mailing List:
