Alternate Solution to Resolve SQL Server Error 5235 Distinct State(s)

DBCC commands are executed to detect the physical as well as logical inconsistency of databases. When DBCC commands are executed without any specified repair clause it displays the appropriate repair switch as an output. And afterwards, when the command is again executed with the prescribed clause the SQL error message may be removed but sometimes these commands results in loss of data.

Therefore, MDF file recovery software can be used as a simplified solution to recover databases in an instant and convenient manner. The tool not only helps in recovering MDF and NDF files but also helps in restoring the recovered files in SQL Server database or SQL Server compatible scripts.
